The Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L.) is a non-profit organization based out of Delta, BC that is dedicated to public education and the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned birds of prey. Two to three hundred owls, eagles, hawks and others come through the facility each year with injuries ranging from bullet wounds, electrocution, broken wings and head trauma (many are often hit by cars or planes) and are treated on site by staff, or local veterinarians.
We have long admired the work that these folks do, and wanted to find out how we could get involved as a band. We toured the facility and found out from O.W.L's director that they are dependent on volunteer work to maintain upkeep of the site (almost 10,000 volunteer hours are logged every year) as well as donations from the public to pay for food, transport, medical supplies and other necessities. It costs almost $400,000 to run the facility annually, and they have received very little in the way of government funding.
This EP is our first step towards supporting O.W.L and the amazing work they do. Your download includes the original version of our song 'Wilderness Eyes' as well as two band made remixes (yes, it includes our rap version) and 100% of the proceeds goes to the group.
But wait...theres more!
As well, your purchase includes the individual track files (or 'stems') so that you can make your own remix. Email your version to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll include it in the EP. You'll get a cd for your efforts, and the best remix will be included as a bonus track on our next release. (stems can also be downloaded here: www.yousendit.com/download/T2dmRE9oZ1BwM2xBSXRVag)
