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.

On This Day in Weird, July 3...

2008: Dr. Eric Guiler, world's foremost authority on the Thylacine, dies in Tasmania at age 85, six years after suffering a severe stroke. After moving from Ireland in 1947, when Thylacines were already presumed extinct, Dr. Guiler led searches for evidence of thylacines, finding footprints, hairs and scats which were donated to the Tasmanian Museum and Art gallery and still form the basis of research. His two books on the subject are The Tragedy of the Tasmanian Tiger and Tasmanian Tiger, A Lesson to Be Learnt.
