Hearing each others sounds is vital to whales and many other marine mammals in our oceans. Human noise just from boating already makes an impact, but to add seismic airgun noise would be horrific for these amazing creatures. Besides potentially physically damaging them, they would not be able to communicate well, there would be confusion and fear which could lead to strandings, separations and even death.
We must protect the environment from the damaging effects of seismic airguns. Please join me in signing a petition to prevent this from happening in the Monterey Bay.
