get it on your cell phone and help protect wildlifeThe Center for Biological Diversity just released a new, free iPhone app, Wild Calls, to boost awareness of endangered species and to encourage you to take action to protect wildlife.
Download the app from the Center or from the iTunes Store, and each week (or more frequently if you choose) one of 30 endangered species sounds recorded in each species' natural habitat will be selected from the Center’s library and “pushed” to you. Want to howl with the Mexican Wolf every time your phone rings? You can download all the barks, chirps or bugles as a ringtone or browse the app’s gallery of 100 additional “Rare Earthtones” for other ringtones and wallpapers. The app also lets you learn about endangered species, and sign petitions in support of wildlife and the planet. Through it you can subscribe to the Center's Endangered Earth Online weekly newsletter and respond to action alerts from the Center.
