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...

THOM WOODRUFF: Animal Apocalypse

ANIMAL APOCALYPSE
JUST OVER SEVEN BILLION HUMANS ON PLANET GAIA
Over one billion diverse animals dead on one continent(Australia)
More than a disaster via fire-loss of habitat is catastrophic
Scorched Earth policies are a tool of modern warfare
Free Fire Zones creating collateral damage
Until 'The Fire Next Time"(James Baldwin) we need to change
our love of money to a love of the land itself(and water,air and even fire)
Robert Frost posited Fire and Ice as possible Fates.We have had an Ice Age.
Who needs to burn? -to learn what all animals know-
When you smell something burning-it is time to go.

An ‘Animal Apocalypse’
As huge fires continue to burn across Australia, 27 people have died as a result. The death toll for native animals: hundreds of millions to more than 1 billion, scientists estimate. The huge numbers illustrate that, while humans can adapt somewhat to intensifying fires — through better emergency planning, more fire crews and “home hardening” — delicate ecosystems are far more vulnerable. And the devastating effects on wildlife could be a preview of what California may experience in future fire seasons.
