Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

CFZ PEOPLE: Well Done Olivia

Today is one of those days of mixed pride and sadness for a stepfather. Olivia, my dear, beautiful, loveable, and occasionally completely ridiculous step-daughter #2 is graduating from the University of Portsmouth.

However, quite understandably, there are only limited numbers of tickets per head available, and so Corinna and Olivia's father are in Portsmouth, while I will stay at home and cheer from the comfort of my study! However, I cannot tell you all how much I wish that I could have been there in person.

I shall be watching on the link below from 2:30

Congratulations Olivia.
Don't get too drunk at the after Graduation celebrations - I was a taxi driver and know what you students are like when you've sampled a few.
