Valentine's Day and nature: free endangered species ringtones

See also

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Center for Biological Diversity rolled out a special new free ringtones campaign: “Love Calls of the Wild.” The campaign features 25 specially selected cell phone ringtones that include mating and social calls along with hoots, chirps, grows and trills from animals across the planet.

“Whether it’s the song of an orca, the hoot of a spotted owl or the howl of a Mexican gray wolf, these ringtones instantly connect people with wildlife, including species at the edge of extinction,” said Peter Galvin, director of programs at the Center. “These ringtones are a great way to show your love for the wild on Valentine’s Day."

The Love Calls are part of the Center’s free endangered species ringtones program, which features clips from more than 100 species. Since 2006 the ringtones have been downloaded about 620,000 times by people in nearly 180 countries around the globe.

Love Calls of the Wild ringtones include sounds from orcas, polar bears, pikas, spotted owls and whooping cranes, along with penguins, toads and prairie dogs.

“Too often in this urban and digital age, we find ourselves separated from these amazing — and increasingly rare — animals that make the world so rich,” Galvin said. “So the ringtones are conversation-starters. Someone overhears one of the sounds and finds they’re suddenly talking with someone else about the plight of an endangered species. It’s a powerful tool that we hope sparks an interest in saving imperiled animals around the globe.”
