Katie Cleary interviews The sound team of the award-winning documentary Sonic Sea who won for best sound at the Golden Reel Awards.
Sonic Sea is about protecting marine life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.
Every day, whales, dolphins, fish and other marine life are threatened by a cacophony of industrial noise from shipping, seismic exploration for oil and gas and naval sonar used for routine training exercises.
From the Atlantic to the Pacific to the wild Arctic, this endless barrage of noise impairs the ability of our planet’s vulnerable marine life to communicate, find food, navigate and breed. Ocean noise is harming and even killing whales, dolphins and other creatures in water bodies all around the world.
We can make a difference, compelling industry and the government to chart a more responsible course to protect countless marine animals — if we rise up together now and demand change.
Oceans are a sonic symphony. Sound is essential to the survival and prosperity of marine life. But man-made ocean noise is threatening this fragile world.
