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...

GLEN VAUDREY: Trail Cameras for Sumatra Part 9

Last week our very successful trail cam funding campaign came to an end and what a great success it has been.

Many thanks to all those people who donated we couldn’t have done it without you. Nor could we have done so well without a very generous discount from the good folk at Bushnell. Together they have enabled the CFZ to purchase four brand new trail cams for our upcoming expedition.


As you can see from the photo of Trevor the trail cam, he is glad to meet up with a couple of boys before they head off to the jungle.


However before the cameras head off to Sumatra with the aim of capturing the elusive orang pendek on film, they are out having a couple of days out in the British countryside being field tested. The results so far have been very promising.


It might not be a big cat but next doors feline who we shall call Blue, happily demonstrates the cameras in action.

The first thing that is self-evident (apart from there being a lack of wildlife in the CFZ garden last night) is that the images from the new machine are so much better than they were with the last machine...
