The whales that live off Alaska’s shores have a morning ritual centered on sounds -- sing-song squeals and trills from other whales alerting them to mating and feeding opportunities, or danger, in the area.
But their ritual is in danger of being ruined, which could have a disastrous impact on their lives and the health of the entire Arctic marine environment.
Tell the federal government to shelve its current study about protecting Arctic marine mammals from noise-related impacts of offshore oil and gas development. The study is flawed. It doesn’t even come close to protecting marine mammals.
