The Centre for Fortean Zoology 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 for things such as equipment, daily running costs and also expeditions. We also hold an annual fundraising event in Woolsery called the Weird Weekend again this helps raise awareness of what we do and also raises vital funds.
