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...

SAVE THE RHINOS

Rhino Poaching Needs to End. And End Now.

17,279 SUPPORTERS
18,000 GOAL

The rhino in this photo is named Sudan. He's the last natural-born male northern white rhino that will ever exist.


And he's dead.
Last year he passed away, leaving northern white rhinos functionally extinct forever. Less than a decade before that another subspecies - the western black rhino - was declared extinct.
These were some of the strongest, toughest animals in the world - there was no natural flaw that triggered this. Their extinction was caused almost entirely by humans poaching for profit.

We are in a crisis.

And as you read this, the criminal gangs are continuing to relentlessly poach rhinos for profit, and a third subspecies - the eastern black rhino - is now down to just 850 individuals.

We must prevent them from suffering the same fate.

By pledging your support for rhinos, you can help to send a message to world leaders that people still care enough to stand up for these poor animals. The last 850 eastern black rhinos have a high price on their head – but you can help protect them. Pledge your support for them today.

RIP Sudan - I pledge to help save the remaining rhinos in your honour.
