Silent Oceans campaign

In many marine areas, levels of human-generated noise have doubled every decade for the past 60 years. For marine animals this has been a life-threatening trend. OceanCare has launched the ‘Silent Oceans’ international campaign to call for the protection of marine animals from ocean noise pollution.
