WHAT CRYPTOZOOLOGY IS:
Cryptozoology ( kryptos : hidden, zoon : animal, and logos : discourse) is the study of "hidden" animals, meaning those that are not classified scientifically, still unknown, undiscovered, thought to be extinct, or out-of-place such as Sasquatch, Dogmen, Lake monsters, pterosaurs, Almas, maned lions in North America, British big cats, and chupacabras. Creatures like these continue to be searched for diligently due to the overwhelming and compelling evidence for their existence through eye witness accounts, folklore, verbal and written history, and other various data that has been collected and studied over long periods of time, often centuries.
CRYPTO HAVEN'S MISSION STATEMENT:
Though this work is at times extremely challenging, it is at the same time awe inspiring, thought-provoking, educational, and rewarding. We will always conduct our work with honesty and a healthy dose of skepticism. Our mission, goals, and intentions as researchers are as follows :
To facilitate a professional atmosphere with science-based innovation, but also keep an open mind about the subjects we are researching.
To promote the exchange of ideas, theories, and methods of research with others in the field of cryptozoology, Forteana, and paranormal investigations to further the potential for finding answers to these as-of-yet unsolved enigmas.
To help bring to common ground the work and concepts of many different analysts, explorers, investigators, and researchers with established and varied backgrounds to promote education and training in our respective fields to meet challenges both individually and together.
To educate the community and to encourage them to take part in the solving of these mysteries.
To explore and document cases of encounters and eye witness accounts, and to lend comfort and counsel to those who have been traumatized by their experiences.
