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: Gavin Lloyd Wilson

I just want to take a few minutes to thank one of the most important members of the bloggo team, and one so secure in his anonymity that the only picture we have of him is him collecting his Golden Baboon award from me at the 2009 Weird Weekend, and even that doesn't show his face.

I suppose I could pinch something off facebook, but it goes against the grain to steal pictures from the bloke you are paying tribute to.

So, Gavin, I just wanted to publicly say thank you for everything you do. Every day, rain or shine, you do the blog news pages, and all you get in return are some stupid puns from Oliver. Thank you, mate; we really appreciate all you do....
