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.

Olivia is Jon Downes' secretary.

Hello everyone. Jon would like everyone to be introduced to each other so (in no particular order because I'm not that organised!):
Me - Jon's stepdaughter, sort of secretary, vague social media presence, CFZ Big Cat Study Group
Graham – Deputy Director of the CFZ and has been for the last 20+ years.
Carl – CFZ Big Cat Study Group
Ronan – CFZ USA Blog
Tony – CFZ New Zealand
Robin – CFZ Canada
Richard – CFZ Lake and Sea Monsters Study Group
Glen – CFZ BHM Study Group, Weird Weekend North
Nathan – CFZ BHM Study Group
Rebecca – CFZ Australia
Mike – CFZ Australia
Lars – Zoological Consultant
Sally – CFZ Lake and Sea Monsters Study Group
Colin – CFZ BHM Study Group
Naomi – CFZ USA
Jon says: “The whole idea of this group is so that senior people within the CFZ who may be separated by great geographical distance can collaborate, help each other, and work together to make all the different CFZ sections the best in the world.
This whole group is for policy rather than news sightings; there are already CFZ Facebook groups for such things. Because of my own failing health and Corinna’s current health problems, I need to delegate more than I have done in the past.
Various amongst you have come up with some really good ideas over the past few years and the main reason they’ve not been implemented is the fact that I just simply don’t have the time to do this stuff myself – hence this group.”
I look forward to getting to know you all better in the weeks and months to come.
