Everyday Activism: The Call of the Vanishing Wild

Getcher free endangered wildlife ringtones here!

Errr, wait. That sounded a bit too giddy, especially since we’re talking about endangered wildlife here. Let’s try this again.

Via the Center for Biological Diversity, download a free endangered wildlife ringtone. Personalize your cell phone, and when friends and strangers inquire about your wild taste, use the opportunity to educate ’em about the plight of the Blue-throated Macaw or the importance of the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Since now is as good a time as any, consider this the first in an ongoing series of “everyday activism” posts. “Everyday activism” = quick, simple, non-taxing actions y’all can take when out and about to advance animal-friendly and green causes. In this case, downloading an endangered species ringtone will take you all of 30 seconds – but will provide you countless opportunities to introduce the issue to those you encounter throughout the day. I was going to begin with a post about getting more AR literature into your public library, but – *shrug* – the ringtones thing is good too!
