Everyone’s favourite Devil… The Tasmanian Devil!

Seeing as Rue Morgue Records is branded by all sorts of ‘devil’ insignia, we thought we would do our bit for conservationism and put our money where our mouth is. In short, we decided to Adopt A Devil and sponsor it to the best of our ability from the Devils @ Cradle Wildlife Park in Tasmania.

Devils @ Cradle is a unique Tasmanian conservation sanctuary located at the entrance to the spectacular World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain National Park. Whilst they concentrate primarily on the Tasmanian devil, the sanctuary is also home to the closely related Spotted-tail and Eastern quolls. Tasmania’s three largest carnivorous marsupials are all now threatened in one way or another in the wild.

The first Devil we have decided to sponsor is Neptune and he is pictured below. The cost of sponsoring a Devil for the duration of a year is $50 but instead of just paying a one-off fee and sponsoring just one Devil, we are going to take donate $50 per month until we have 12 Devils in our fold.

The very first sale we make each month that totals $50, that money will be donated to Devils @ Cradle and the customer who’s money was donated will be listed on this page AND we will send you the kit that Devils @ Cradle send to us with your record which paid for the sponosorship! Cool huh?

It is just a small way of giving and donating to a cause we here at Rue Morgue Records believes in.

Neptune is pictured below and was sponsored by Rue Morgue Records CEO John Raptis.

We welcome you to go ahead and sponsor off your own back if you wish via this link.

Subsequently, we will do so on your behalf with the first record sold each month. $50 will go to sponsor another Devil! It costs you NOTHING as the proceeds will be coming out of our coffers. You still get the record you ordered as normal, but you also get all the feel good vibes of knowing you have contributed to this cause.
