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...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

http://cryptozoologynews.blogspot.com/

On this day in 1874 the explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton was born.
Before the news today though I would like to draw peoples attention to this, the HM government petition to stop the health bill (100,000 or more signatures and it gets debated in parliament) :
https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/22670

If you are a UK citizen make sure you sign it because even if you agree with the government that the NHS should be 'part privitized' (if so shame on you) rather than just have the waste cut the current proposal is a complete hash and just will not work. Did you know Andrew Langsley was given a huge cash 'gift' from a provider of private health care insurance to help with his campaign before the last election? Well if not you do now (seriously, check his wikipedia page), now isn't that a bit suspicious?

And now the news:
