ReleaSING Good Wolf Short Film



FOR EARTH DAY, April 22, 2021

Columbus, OH – April 20, 2021: In celebration of Earth Day coming up on April 22, Shawna Ray, a singer/songwriter, author and communicator from Columbus, Ohio, wrote the song “Good Wolf” and created a short film to bring awareness to the plight of wolves and wildlife.

Shawna first visited the WCC in 2018 at the invitation of Dr. Scott Kantro, a long-time member of the WCC’s Board of Directors. Shawna was captivated by the wolves and inspired by the WCC’s efforts to protect their wild kin. She wrote “Good Wolf” the night after her visit to the WCC and recorded it in Nashville, TN produced by Elliott Didur. An acoustic version of the Good Wolf song was released on Shawna’s “Catch 22” Album released on 2-22-2020. Elliott and Shawna later developed the song with full production using video of wolves from the WCC and other licensed stock footage to create the short film.

Founded by Hélène Grimaud in 1999, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit environmental education organization working to protect and preserve wolves in North America through science-based education, advocacy, and participation in the federal recovery and release programs for two critically endangered wolf species – the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf. Through wolves, the WCC teaches the broader message of conservation, ecological balance, and personal responsibility for improved human stewardship of our World.

Good Wolf is written from the perspective of a mother wolf wanting to protect her family. We encourage you to watch and share the short film and support conservation this Earth Day!
