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: APOLOGIES TO THE STRONSA MONSTER

Well would you believe it I've been using the wrong name all along the creature known as the Stronsa Beast - it would like to be known from now on as the Stronsa Monster. I apologise to any parts of the creature that may have taken offence at this mislabelling
So here it is in all it glory: the Stronsa Monster

HELEN AND BETH'S PIGEON RESCUE


The other night Helen rescued a pigeon that a young person of uncertain parentage had shot with an air gun. Despite being covered in blood she had to chase it across several gardens before managing to catch it.

The lucky bird is now recuperating with Beth and Hartland Wildlife Rescue.

RSPB: Chancellor attacks nature – step up to save it today!

Dear Supporter

Its official, the environment is a barrier to economic growth and jobs. Well it is if you listen to George Osborne who presented possibly the most environmentally hostile economic statement for a generation on Tuesday. His opinion contradicts that of his colleague Caroline Spelman, the Environment Secretary, who has said the natural environment underpins global economic performance.

The Chancellor seems to have little regard for sustainable development or the ‘green economy’, and even less for climate change. He wants to dismantle the environmental protections that have served our most precious wildlife sites well for nearly two decades.

The RSPB accepts the need for the UK Government to prioritise job creation. But we fear the current pursuit of short-term gains at the expense of the natural world, which ultimately sustains us, will result in a far greater cost both to wildlife and the economy.

Please step up for nature and write to your MP today.

Thanks for your support
