Doctor Jean-Jacques Barloy was born in France in 1939 and has since earned a doctorate in zoology, specializing in ornithology, the scientific study of birds. Barloy is also a natural history journalist and the author of hundreds of French articles, along with a small number of books, related to cryptozoology. Two of his books are Serpent de mer et monsters aquatiques, which was published in 1978 and deals with Sea Serpents and Les survivants de Lombre, which was published in 1985 and deals with relict populations of hominids.
In the 1980’s Jean-Jacques Barloy was credited as being one of the first scientists ever to utilize computers in the analysis of data pertaining to cryptozoological phenomenon, most notably the Beast of Gevaudan. He frequently appears as a guest on French television and radio programs discussing cryptozoology and is thought by some to be responsible for the level of popularity cryptozoology is currently enjoying in France.
A close friend and disciple of cryptozoologist Bernard Heuvelmans, Barloy has since writing a biography on Heuvelmans’ life entitled, Bernard Heuvelmans: Un Rebelle de la Science (Bernard Heuvelmans: A Science Rebel) which was published in February of 2007.
