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



On This Day in Weird, September 14...

1909: Conservationist Sir Peter Markham born in London, England. In 1975, based on a blurry underwater photo taken at Loch Ness, he proposed a scientific name for the Loch Ness Monster—Nessiteras rhombopteryx—to permit the cryptid's listing as an endangered species.



1925: Roy P. Mackal born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In later life, while a professor of biology at the University of Chicago, he became well known as an cryptozoologist, author, and a founder of the International Society of Cryptozoology.
