Save the Future
Raptor Project to release Save the Future CD Thanks to popular demand, World Bird Sanctuary's house band, The Raptor Project, has released it's' first CD, Save the Future July 20, 2007. It consists of original songs about birds, the environment and taking care of our planet. After years of sing-a-long and Birds in Concert performances, many requests from teachers, friends and WBS visitors inspired the project. The collection is made up of 12 songs, encoded lyrics on the CD and teacher activity pages. This recording is for everyone; kids, parents, teachers, young and old will find it fun and educational. And, it fulfills the mission of WBS. The recording of the CD was made possible by long-time WBS volunteer, Jim Small. He provided the recording equipment, computer system and allowed his home to be taken over on many, many weekends during the recording process. This saved thousands of dollars in studio time and made the entire project possible. Thank you, Jim. While Jim's home studio made the recording possible, WBS raised the money for duplication and reproduction costs. Funds from every CD sold will go directly to the care of birds residing at WBS. "This is the ultimate team effort", says WBS musician Roger Holloway. "With Jim's generosity and technical know-how and Joe Hoffmann's creative energy, it is a very special project." "We all brought important 'ingredients' to the sessions and we really love the songs." A combination of 10 WBS staff, volunteers and interns lent their talents to the recording. "Having WBS staff and volunteers complete this makes it very exciting for us." The CD is available for purchase for $12 at the WBS giftshop, it can be purchased online on CD Baby, off of our website or you can receive it by mail.
