FOUNDING DIRECTORS' BIOS    
Beth Carruthers Nelson Gray  
Partners, Funders and Sponsors

SongBird was a not-for-profit project, and later a registered society. Support from foundations, corporations, government and non-governmental organisations, from individuals and the community made our work possible.

I extend a warm thank-you to all those who supported our work and worked side by side with us on some truly inspiring events and initiatives. You are all examples of the words "be the change you want to see" in the world.

The primary producer of SongBird events from the beginning until 2000, Savage Media played an indespensible role in SongBird's emergence and success and Savage Media's Artistic Director Nelson Gray was co-director of the SongBird project until 2000.

A very special thank-you to Dr. Val Schaefer and the Institute of Urban Ecology at Douglas College, to Amir Alibhai and Elizabeth Kidd at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver, and to Gretchen Harlow of the Canadian Wildlife Service, who wholeheartedly came on board right at the beginning of SongBird and worked with us through the 5 years of the project. Special thanks also go to John Morton of Wild Birds Unlimited for his consistent support.
