At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

Centre for Fortean Zoology
This year's Weird Weekend, held by the Centre for Fortean Zoology in the UK, is scheduled for 15th-17th August.  An outstanding assemblage of speakers has been engaged, including Richard Freeman (aka Barry Tadcaster), Nigel Mortimer, Lee Walker (an outstanding lecturer in my view), Max Blake, Glen Vaudrey, Nick Wadham, Judge Dredd (I mean Smith) and Neil Nixon.  Oh, yes, and me: they're making me do two lectures because of the cost of bringing me over from Ireland!
Jonathan Downes, Secretary CFZ
Topics covered will include alien abductions, ancient astronauts, urban legends of Liverpool, out of place birds, genetics for cryptozoologists and more.  The famous Tunnel of Goats will be in evidence.

The event also includes activities for younger persons.
