Where Light Meets Dark conducts critical analyses of evidence for the survival of fauna where it is not expected. This includes examining the evidence for species believed to be extinct, as well as individual animals detected outside their expected range (out of place / OOPs).
You can request that I take a look at a particular piece of evidence via the feedback forum.
