The Center for Biological Diversity is offering new, free ring tones called “Love Calls of the Wild,” just in time for Valentine's Day.
“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,” says the nonprofit's news release.
I couldn't preview the ring tones because the S-R's web-security program wouldn't connect. Probably something having to do with the words “love” and “wild” in the same sentence.
Here's the link, though, in case you aren't similarly hobbled by a cyber-nanny: http://www.rareearthtones.org/ringtones/index.html
Keep in mind, the CBD is a conservation-minded nonprofit, and it looks like you'll be automatically enrolled in its “biodiversity activist network” if you want to download a ringtone — but it also says it's easy to unsubscribe from that.
(PS - there's no image with this blog post because searching “mating calls” in the AP image database yielded only a picture of some new reality show called “Massive Mating Game.” Maybe we should be glad most of this is blocked by our cyber-nanny.)
