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...

DALE DRINNON: New Guinea Giant Hornbill

Newest posting on the Frontiers of Zoology blog: this was a matter Karl Shuker mentioned in one of his books and which is a confusion in reports about the Ropen; and it is something which I mentioned back in April but left hanging ever since.

How did 75 whales end up in the desert?

This story ended up in my email inbox no less than six times yesterday. I know nothing about the story apart from these pictures and the title. So if anyone can enlighten me as to what whales? which desert? whether they are recent skeletons or fossilised? and who are these people? I will be most grateful....

THE APPEALS FOR DIPU AND SAHAR

Just a quick head's up. We are definitely going to be running appeals for Dipu Marek in India and for the widow of Sahar Dimus in Indonesia. However, we have to wait until we can sort out how to do it on paypal without falling foul of their regulations. Give us a day or two....
