Whales Endangered by Oil Exploration?
Exploring for oil makes serious sounds on many levels that travel far in the water. Can it be injuring whales?
This article about oil exploration indicates that whales are in trouble as a result. Not being "tree huggers" but any stretch of the imagination, we feel that mankind should really learn to talk to whales before we're so anxious to make noises that could hurt them. Just saying.
Here's the article. We strongly suggest more research into the effect that seismic pulses have on marine mammals that can talk to each other from vast distances. It has to do something. Let's find out what it is.
The story is on The Australian Marine Conservation Society:
The lives of endangered species like our southern right and blue whales, as well as orcas, seals and dolphins are at risk. For now, their home in The Great Australian Bight is a pristine paradise off the wild Southern Ocean.
But fossil fuel corporations are lobbying hard to change this - so they can drill for oil and gas in this wonderful wilderness.
