World Bird Sanctuary recently sent along this press release:
One of the great symbols of the 60′s was the image of the bird perched on the neck of a guitar. World Bird Sanctuary has come close to creating the real-life version of this cherished symbol with its’ first offering of original songs on CD entitled Save the Future. The 12 tracks on this disc are fun, entertaining and educational for kids as well as adults. The songs foster an appreciation for birds generally, but also single-out certain species such as Turkey vultures, Red-tailed hawks, the extinct Dodo and our national symbol, the Bald Eagle. Encoded on the disc are the song lyrics and educational activities and games that can be worked on computer. The entire project was made with teachers and parents in mind.
Creators Joe Hoffmann and Roger Holloway, both 20-year veterans at the W.B.S., came to record the CD after numerous requests from teachers and parents. The two have been performing Sing-a-Long programs with their guitars and live birds in the ST. Louis area since the mid 90′s. It was simply a logical step to put the songs on disc so audience members could take the experience home. Numerous schools and libraries have incorporated the CD into their collections.
All proceeds from the sales of Save the Future support the treatment of injured birds of prey in the World Bird Sanctuary hospital. W.B.S. is a 501Â©3 organization and must rely upon numerous fundraising endeavors to continue its’ work. To find out more, visit the W.B.S. website: www.worldbirdsanctuary.org
The CD can be purchased there, at the Sanctuary’s gift shop or on line at Cdbaby.com
