William Gibbons is a world renowned explorer made famous by his many expeditions deep into the Congo in search of a large sauropod like creature known by the locals, and the cryptozoological world, as Mokel-Mbembe. He initially became interested in mystery animals after watching an early movie adaptation of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic, The Lost World. His curiosity as a child carried into adulthood and resulted in major expiations into the Congo in 1985 through 1986 and one in 1992. A third major expiation was launched in 2001 under the organization name, Cryptosafari.
William referred to as Bill by many of his colleagues, also conducted two other field investigations in search of a much smaller, presumed extinct animal known as the Dodo. Gibbons ventured to the island of Mauritius in the southern Indian Ocean in 1990 and 1997 after two European visitors claimed to have seen the large flightless bird. He returned with no evidence of the birds continued existence however did plan to return, though no mention of a further expedition could be found at this time.
