The Centre for Fortean Zoology is a professional and scientific organisation dedicated to cryptozoology: The study of unknown animals and allied disciplines.
Richard Muirhead is probably the best researcher that I know.

When the CFZ started a daily blog in 2009, Muirhead was one of the first contributors, and over the intervening years has contributed hundreds of fascinating articles. A trained librarian, he has what Charles Fort would have called a ‘wild talent’; he has a remarkable attitude for unearthing arcane data from obscure archives.
