Over 50,000 ships around the world produce constant and unbearably loud underwater noise and oil and gas corporations carry out seismic explorations every few seconds for weeks and months on end.
It’s not only large mammals in the ocean who rely on sound to communicate,
but tiny larvae too.
It’s important because with phytoplankton and algae, they absorb over 30% of the co2 produced by the burning of fossil fuels and produce half of the oxygen we breathe.
If the larvae and phytoplankton die, there will be no fish in the sea.
