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...

CORINNA EULOGISES ABOUT THE PLIGHT OF TRISTAN DA CUNHA

I have always been fascinated by the tiny British overseas territory (we are not allowed to call them colonies any more) of Tristan da Cunha and its 275 inhabitants. Its history makes fascinating reading. The story of how, in 1961, a volcanic eruption forced the entire population to be rehoused in a disused RAF station in Hampshire for over a year, is particularly poignant.

Recent events have spurred Corinna into writing a blog about the islands..

DOUG SHOOP: Wolves - the YouTube Channel

With the recent de-listing of the grey wolf - an unfortunate decision in my opinion - I think it’s a good idea to learn about and enjoy these magnificent animals. International Wolf Center 25 March 2011 - A Slow Transition to Spring http://www.youtube.com/user/IntlWolfCenter

Excellent howling!

BLOGGO ISSUES

The formatting issues within Blogger continue. As it is the last day of the month, I am going to (laboriously) enter the last week's blog entries into a second index page called March 2011 (2). We will have to see what happens with April.

Just to confuse things, there is some sort of technical problem with Amazon.co.uk (Amazon.com and other countries appear not to be effected. Our most recent books come complete with a notice saying that they are `usually dispatched within one to two months`. This is nonsense as far as we are aware. They should not take any longer to arrive than any other book on Amazon. However, we would like to assure you all that Hayley our representative within Lightning Source is working on it and that normal service should resume fairly soon.

Normal? What do you mean NORMAL?
