Stop Ocean Noise Pollution
NRDC

Every day, marine life is threatened by a harsh cacophony of industrial noise from shipping, seismic exploration, and naval sonar used for routine training exercises. This endless barrage of ocean noise is harming and even killing sea creatures. We must chart a more responsible course.

Using new tech to quiet ships, reining in the use of deafening seismic airguns, putting vital marine areas off-limits to Navy sonar, and other measures will go a long way toward curbing ocean noise.

This problem is fixable - if we act now.

Join us in asking the White House to take immediate steps to reduce ocean noise pollution!
