Oceans are a sonic symphony. Sound is essential to the survival and prosperity of marine life.
Sonic Sea is about protecting life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.
The oceans are not a silent world, but dynamic, living symphonies of sound. In water, sound travels five times faster, and many times farther than it does in air.
Whales, dolphins, porpoises, and other marine mammals have evolved to take advantage of this perfect sonic medium. Just as we rely on sight to survive, they depend on sound to hunt for food, find mates and detect predators.
Over the last fifty years, our increasing ocean presence has drastically transformed the acoustic environment of these majestic creatures. Undersea noise pollution is invisible but it is damaging the web of ocean life.
The leading contributors to ocean noise come from commercial, industrial and military sources: shipping, seismic and Sonar.
We can reduce the impacts of ocean noise if we take action now
