Natural phones?

Who hasn't been annoyed by a stranger's cell phone playing the anemic electronic intro to some annoying pop song? The original was bad enough. The Center for Biological Diversity says enough of that, and offers--completely free--Endangered Wildlife Ringtones, a wide assortment of natural sounds from endangered reptiles, mammals and birds. The Blue-throated Macaw, Beluga Whale, Boreal Owl, Mountain Yellow-legged Frog and Yosemite Toad are among the offerings, over 40 in all. Even marine mammal calls are included. Also available are high-quality images to serve as cell phone wallpaper. The goal is not to pick your pocket, but to educate you and your friends about endangered wildlife. These "haunting hoots, sensational songs and crazy croaks" are available on the Center's website along with some thumbnail explanations of the extinction crisis.
