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...

CFZ PEOPLE: An open letter to dear Syd Henley (in rhyme)

Syd Henley phoned me late last night
Complaining about our website
He said the new design just stinks
Cos he couldn't find any links,
And I realised I'd have to think
because there was no front page link
to the back postings from all the blogs
about expeditions, cryptids and CFZ dogs
but that has now been rectified,
I'm sorry Syd (at least I tried)
And of you look at the graphic below
it will tell you where to go.
Syd also sounded quite irated
that the Weird Weekend site's not updated
so the details can all be seen
about the event for 2015
more apologies from this humble freak
it probably will be done next week...

It is good to see that CFZ CHAOS still reigns supreme.
Now your in the process of correcting / ammending that first batch of SNAFU's I will have to start searching for more, just to keep you on your toes.
