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...

RICHARD FREEMAN: CARDOMON MOUNTAINS TO BE MINED

February 2011. Cambodian Prime Minister, Hun Sen, has approved a land concession to United Khmer Group, a private mining company. The decision came ahead of a meeting that was supposed to discuss the project.

The plan is to mine titanium in 20,400 hectares of densely forested land in the Southern Cardamom Mountains. The area is an ‘elephant corridor’ and home to over 70 endangered species. Local villagers recognized the mine as a threat to the growing ecotourism industry, agricultural initiatives, forests, and a habitat for one of Cambodia's largest wild elephant populations. The fight against this horrific project is being led by Suwanna Gauntlett, Wildlife Alliance CEO, representing the views of local communities and other environmental groups.

Local villagers initially discovered construction workers bulldozing access roads in the midst of the Southern Cardamoms Protected Forest in June 2010 suggesting that the plan was formulated some time ago.

Imagine if you saw “Moby Dick the musical” billed at your local theatre... That sounds like it would be a cool show right? Hmm. Well, turns out it's a musical about an all girls school staging an amateur production of a Moby Dick musical... WHY?? Well, you can listen to it here if you still want to. In the meantime, if you'll excuse me I'm off to be 'Moby sick':
