Spooky Bird Ringtones Turn Halloween into a Walk on the Wild Side

October 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
“Boo!” takes on an added dimension this Halloween, thanks to a company that produces wildlife ringtones to support conservation efforts.

Conservation Calling is featuring spooky nature sounds from their collection of wildlife and bird ringtones that are especially suitable for the night of fright, with each creepy download benefiting wildlife habitat. Eerie loons and barn owls, cawing ravens, fluttering bats and howling wolves evoke scenes of mist and haunted woods. Less familiar but perhaps even scarier are the screeching baboons whose disconcertingly human-like shrieks are sure to send shivers up the spine with each incoming call.

“In addition to our Halloween line, we have the largest collection of nature ringtones available –– from bird calls to jungle, forest and aquatic animal sounds,” said Tammy Monroe, Conservation Calling outreach coordinator. “In a world of ‘same old’ default rings and hip-hop songs on every other cellphone, our customers find our bird and wildlife ringtones refreshing and different.”

Conservation Calling believes it’s possible to have fun and do good at the same time. With each growl, grunt and bird call purchased, the company donates ten percent of its net to the non-profit conservation group American Forests. It also promotes nature conservation awareness by regularly featuring different conservation groups on its homepage.

The site is popular with wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers. “We find that avid bird watchers love our bird songs” Monroe said, “and novice birders find the bird ringtones a fun and easy way to learn bird calls and enjoy their acoustic sport even more.”

“People find our website fun, educational and easy to use,” added Monroe. “Often they are surprised to hear what many birds and animals actually sound like, and they also enjoy sharing the experience with their children.”

While ringtones are at the forefront of Conservation Calling’s product line, the website also offers mobile games and cell phone wallpapers, ensuring that visitors to the website will find a howling good time for a good cause –– long after the trick-or-treating is over.
