WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

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...

AT THE AGE OF 51 AND 53 GRAHAM AND I ARE NOW COMPANY DIRECTORS

It gives me great pleasure to announce that one of the initiatives that I announced in my Keynote Speech at the Weird Weekend has now come to pass. As of last thursday, The Centre for Fortean Zoology, CFZ Press, and The Amateur Naturalist plus all the other things we do within the realms of both Cryptozoology and Natural History are administered by a Company Limited by Guarantee called "CFZ Natural History Ltd".


A Company Limited by Guarantee is basically a limited company set up not to make a profit, and is the next step to being a charity. There are two Directors: Graham and myself, and as - by law - neither director can benefit financially from the activities of the company, I hope that this will put to bed, once and for all, any accusations of financial impropriety on mine, or Graham's (or indeed Corinna's, because as wife of a Director, she cannot benefit financially either) part. Accounts will be available, as with any other company, from Companies House.

Still waiting for you to become a charity. I am really looking forward to what 'Highland Tiger' will have to say when you start receiving funds from the Haliburton global conspiracy.
