The ISRT was established back in 2000. It was designed for research investigators that wanted to work with a team of independent research people that are honest, hard working and share a common goal in this field of study.
The ISRT has been known for an unparalleled commitment to this research investigation field. It’s this standard of excellence that has provided the impetus for us to grow into who we are today, one of the most respected research teams that care about these creatures, the environment and eyewitnesses that have encounters.
About the founder
The founder of the ISRT started his research in 1995 in remembrance of watching the Patterson/Gimlin film at the age of seven years old in the late seventy's on the show
He now has well over twenty years experience on the subject. His knowledge of the subject grew as he studied the thousands of eyewitnesses encounters and became cognitive of patterns of these creatures and has found they all share commonalities across the country and our world.
After spending three years studying encounters and reading literature from many respected field researcher investigators. He spent many years in the field putting that knowledge to work and acquiring the skills needed for definitive evidence collection, and continues to this day.
The ISRT is originally based in central Florida and have researchers through out the US but not limited to these areas. They have trusted well experienced field research individuals that have many years of field investigation experience.
"Our common goal and responsibility as research analysts on this subject is to bring a deluge of scientific evidence to the people. In order for us to do this, we all need to work together as a team on this common goal"..
We are a serious and practical research team, that uses proper research techniques and scientific methods to conduct appropriate and complete investigations for evidence collecting when conducting field research. In order to prove their existence to science, we must follow their methods. In order to prove their existence to ourselves, well, you just have to be in their presence.
The ISRT respects not only the people that have activity on their property, but also the environment which surrounds these creatures. The ISRT abides by any state and federal laws that we are aware of on any property that we investigate.
We can be trusted with our activities on any property (business, public or private).
Our team respects nature and the environment.
If you are having or had encounters of these creatures on your private property, we want to speak to you and investigate that location.
You will not be ridicule or judged about your encounters.
What we offer
The ISRT provides field training to new members that are new to the research work. We do this while in the field or in a classroom type setting and is a major factor in doing this research and doing it correctly. Training classes such as Visual Tracking, Forensic Collecting, Wilderness Survival, and Cryptid Evidence Awareness training.
What you'll notice is that our members are required to have these qualities,
Integrity, loyalty, Dignity, Honesty, Respect, and Compassion.
While using scientific methods to collect evidence in our research, we decipher evidence from many different angles to determine if this evidence, could be from these creatures or something common. We must have an unbiased insight in what we find., "Not every finding is Sasquatch related".
We do not charge anything for joining our team. You can donate any money or equipment as a gift, to help in this research which would be much appreciated.
All evidence found by members of our team is their property and is in conjunction with the ISRT's agreement that you do everything in your power to get whatever evidence examined by specific scientists that are favorable and in good standing in this field of study.
We inquire Scientists like Dr. Jeff Meldrum and others, to scientifically examine evidence for their professional experienced objective to determine if the evidence gathered is in fact real and from these creatures.
For DNA analysis, we have three independent scientists willing to analyze hair and other genetic samples.
We will not post any evidence or locations of our findings on the Internet. Over the years that we have been in this research, we have seen where people post things that have not been evaluated properly and people assume that what they have is one of these creatures on video or pictures.
We have seen hundreds of pictures that people have taken that are out of focus or they have to point out or circle areas on the pictures of where these things are. Our thoughts on this are simple. If you have to do this to any pictures or videos, you just don’t have the definitive evidence that is needed to determine one way or another.
Our method, when opportunity presents itself to get good video and definitive proof of these creatures, WE GET CLOSER TO THEM! Most people will not do this. Pictures are great for tracks and physical evidence but undeniable video is more conclusive.
As Roger Patterson did back in 1967, he knew that he had to get closer to the creature. In fact, this means that he knew what the camera he had at the time could and could not do and in watching the film, you can see that he does get closer to the creature.

do not respect people, property, and the environment
If you would like to know more about joining the ISRT please contact ISRTUSA@gmail.com
The Ideal Research Investigator
What we are looking for are people in the academic world of science like anthropology, biologists that specialize in geneticist using E-DNA & other fields of science. We want reputable people to look at evidence that we collect from the field. We look for people that take this research seriously to work exclusively with the ISRT. We will share our findings with the scientific community when evidence is found and needs to be examined.
We are looking for anyone that may have some private property that we can investigate that maybe having encounters of these creatures or that you think maybe having some Sasquatch activity. If you have areas like this or you know of someone that does and you are in contact with them, please e-mail ISRTUSA@gmail.com
** Town Hall Meeting **
Colt Creek State Park Town Hall Meeting
I would like to invite you to a town hall meeting that will be conducted at Colt Creek State Park in the
Green Swamp of Florida.
The ISRT is joining up with other Sasquatch field research investigators to have the general public come and listen and express their encounters from the Green Swamp and surrounding areas of Central Florida.
We’re asking any and all to come out and share your encounters so we can update our sighting database and investigate those areas.
We are conducting this not only for the awareness of these creatures but also show that there are legitimate people that are working toward the common goal to finding true answers to the many questions about these cryptid creatures.
Please join us and listen to speakers as we discuss what these cryptid creatures are and what evidence has been collected. Have you had an encounter? Come join us along with other people that have had encounters just like you.
Please understand that your confidential information WILL NOT be made public or used without your consent. You will not be ridicule or judged about your encounters. We respect everyone’s privacy.
Please bring a folding chair. Event will be held under an enclosed area and picnic tables are provided but may be limited seating. We’re expecting a good turnout.
