Loud. Louder. Lifeless.

The Silent Oceans Coalition is calling on the worldwide public to stand up for more silence in the oceans and appeal to decision-makers to prevent dangerous projects such as crude oil exploration from going ahead without an environmental impact assessment.

Marine animals use noise to find their bearings, search for food, communicate, find a mate and locate predators, but their world is being inundated by intensive human-induced noise caused by military sonar, oil and gas exploration and ships which is claiming more and more victims. The consequences are seriousn, causing everything from severe disturbance and injury, to death. Whales are stranding, shoals of fish are collapsing, and sea turtles are fleeing.
