A blog for the United States branch of the global Centre for Fortean Zoology
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.

STEVE IRWIN'S LEGACY
Many of you will remember Steve Irwin, whose television shows featured all manner of wildlife, particularly crocodiles. As his legacy, his widow Terri and children Bindi (16) and Robert (11) now run the Australian Zoo in Queensland. Unsurprisingly, the zoo has a section called the Crocoseum. Irwin's death as a young man was tragic, but he was a staunch supporter of the conservation of wildlife and has obviously greatly influenced his family. If you're vacationing in Australia, there are bus tours to the Zoo from Brisbane and from selected tourist hotels. For more information, follow the link.
