We hope that you have fun exploring our site, but remember, unlike some of our competitors, this site is run by working cryptozoologists, not hobbyists. The research into cryptozoology across the globe, and our rapidly expanding programme of community work comes first. We are on a deadly serious mission - do you want to join us?

We are active in conservation, cryptozoology education and community work with both adults and children, but in the last few years things have changed. Increasingly idiotic legislation from successive governments has produced an education system aimed at teaching children to pass exams, and very little else. Add to this the social changes which have made it almost impossible for children (and adults) to study Natural History as a hobby, and you have a situation which we believe is a tragedy.

Because without amateur naturalists there would have been no Darwin, no Linneaus, no Gerald Durrell, no David Attenborough, and no Centre for Fortean Zoology. And without the amateur naturalists of the 21st Century, from whence will the next generation of zoological savants and freethinkers emerge?

DONATE
Cryptozoology is a harsh mistress. Whilst no-one involved in the CFZ management team is paid for their efforts, running an organisation of this size is increasingly expensive.

Sadly, last year - through no fault of our own - we lost two of our main funding sources and are currently facing the worst cash crisis that we have ever had. Every dollar and every pound donated goes straight into CFZ Funds, and we would ask for your generosity.

Please help us to continue with our mission - to prove that famous dictum of Bernard Heuvelmans, the `Father of Cryptozoology`, that "The Great Days of Zoology are not done".

We are always looking for volunteers, and people who can donate time, equipment or expertise. If you think you can help, please get in touch!

On the old cryptozoology sites, there were 46220 hits between 20 Feb 1998 and 6 Apr 2004 (although for technical reasons the page counter was inactive for several protracted periods during that time and the actual number of visitors was therefore much higher).

 

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

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.

We are a non-profit making organisation, and none of the directors are paid anything for their time and effort. Any monies earned or donated go straight into our work. We are also active in disability rights; several of the directorate, including the director, are disabled, and we hope that our activities give a positive view of what disabled people can achieve.

Have fun exploring our site and find out how you can join the world's biggest, fastest growing and best mystery animal research group

The CFZ is based in an old country house in rural Devonshire, parts of which are well over 200 years old. It is home to several ghosts, a bewildering and ever changing array of animals and people, and the Director of the CFZ and his wife Corinna.

We have a nascent museum and library, as well as facilities for film making, publishing, and research. Over the next few years we have plans to continue our programme of renovations to make this the world's foremost fortean zoological or cryptozoological research facility.

CFZ PRESS
We are the world's leading publishers of cryptozoological, and cryptozoology related books with over fifty titles currently in print. One of our latest books is The Great Yokai Encyclopaedia by Richard Freeman....

Sick of werewolves, tired of zombies, will you scream if you read ay more about vampires? Well Richard Freeman’s new book ‘The Great Yokai Encyclopaedia; An A to Z of Japanese Monsters’ is the perfect antidote. No one could accuse Japanese folklore or Japanese monsters of being run of the mill.

With early public literacy, access to the printing press and hundreds of years of Shinto, Buddhist, and Taoist cultural cross pollinations, the stage is said for some truly insane legendary beasts that make the creations of H.P.Lovecraft look as wholesome as the Care Bears. Collectively known as Yokai, the ghosts and monsters from the Land of the Rising Sun are so strange that to a western mind they are like having a mental enema. The book lists a cavalcade of the weirdest monsters in the world. Giant man eating sea cucumbers that grow from girl's knickers, pervert water goblins, grave robbing giant rabbits, dragons that impregnate women, flaming pigs that steal human genitals, monsters that eat your hair, monsters that lick the ceiling, monsters that lick poorly kept public toilets, cats that animate dead bodies, dogs with shape shifting testicles, blood sucking weasels and un-dead whales, it's all in here and much, much more!
