Funding

Raven has been developed by the Bioacoustics Research Program at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Special thanks to Christopher Clark, the BRP director and co-principal investigator on the original Raven grant, for his belief in the project and his funding to fill in the gaps between grants and licensing revenues.

Initial funding for Raven came from the National Science Foundation.

A big thank you to our customers, whose purchases help to fund support and additional development of Raven.

Encouragement

Kurt Fristrup, formerly with BRP, was a co-principal investigator on the original Raven grant and has been a tireless supporter of Raven since the beginning.

Donald Kroodsma's encouragement was the catalyst that allowed Raven Lite to become a reality.

David Bach was an early adapter of Raven in the classroom and continues to teach his students using Raven.

Rick Bonney helped to get Raven Exhibit off the ground and has been a proponent of it ever since.

Development

Thank you to all software developers, technical writers, graphic and web designers, research analysts, and testers for their work on Raven.
