What is the evidence for a rare, large, secretive species of primate (or “great ape”) living in North America at present?

What is the evidence for a rare, large, secretive species of primate (or “great ape”) living in North America at present?

Find out at an author reading by wildlife biologist Dr. John Bindernagel. Dr. Bindernagel will read from his latest book: The Discovery of the Sasquatch.

He has over 40 years of experience in wildlife research and conservation in North America and internationally. He was educated at the University of Guelph in Ontario and at the University of  Wisconsin.

Bindernagel’s interest in the sasquatch, which began in 1965, influenced a family decision to relocate from central Canada to British Columbia in 1975. He continues to be involved in wildlife research and resides on Vancouver Island.

The reading and discussion will included casts made of sasquatch footprints and illustrations by eyewitnesses on Vancouver Island.  Copies of the book will be available to purchase.

This is a free event, all are invited to attend Nov. 10 at 11 a.m. at the Courtenay Library. For more information, contact the library at 250-334-3369.
