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...

That would just be vulgar, but our lives, and those of the animals which we look after, would be a damn sight easier if we receive more donations to our fighting fund. Donate via Paypal today...

THE CFZ SHOP: Issy Wissy let's get Busy!

I have often told Emma Osborne that she is like Sooty. She takes something moribund that I don't understand like our CFZ Press Facebook pages, sprinkles 'oofle dust' all over it and makes it a success.

As her husband Matthew so charmingly puts it, once again I have had my bottom kicked by the Sooty of the CFZ, she waves her hand at things that then work, she says we need more items in our online shop at www.zazzle.co.uk/cfzjon*

Since 2009 we have had 13 very nice products for sale there, but as Emma pointed out if someone bought an item they would not be inspired to return. Emma is now setting to work to make as many products as she can, as this is written at 15:03 the first wave are yet to appear as it takes 24 hours or more for them to be approved, but we have over 300 items awaiting for approval with Weird Weekend 2012, Big Cat Study Group ,CFZ Australia and CFZ USA being first to appear. She has been assisted in this mass onslaught by her husband, it may be closer to the case that she has done the work while he fetched the coffees.

Do view the new items at www.zazzle.co.uk.cfzjon* every item gives at least 10% to our funds which will go towards things like equipment, general running costs and much more and remember to keep checking back as there will be a lot of changes, also feel free to send the link to whomsoever you think may wish to view it
