Thanksgiving is near - meet a Turkey Named Fred!

You may wonder what a Turkey Named Fred has to do with a wildlife hospital that treats birds of prey.

Fred is helping us to save eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, vultures and more! "Save the Future" is a CD featuring fun, entertaining environmentally-focused songs.  They were writtten, performed and produced by staff and volunteers at World Bird Sanctuary, who make up our in-house band, The Raptor Project.

All proceeds from the sale of the CD directly benefit the birds admitted to our wildlife hospital - helping to pay for their food and medical expenses, raising in excess of $3,000.

"Turkey Named Fred" is one of the most popular songs on the CD, and has spawned a cartoon, with a book in production to go along with this story.  You can listen to the song here - and if you like it, you can buy the CD here.  You can even visit Fred, our Royal Palm Turkey, at World Bird Sanctuary!

We would like to make "Turkey Named Fred" a new Thanksgiving tradition - and you can help by calling your local radio station to tell them about it.
