Sonic Sea – a movie by the International Fund for Animal Welfare

SONIC SEA – International Fund for Animal Welfare
 
A new movie by our client IFAW – International Fund for Animal Welfare
 
“The oceans are not a silent world, but dynamic, living symphonies of sound. In water, sound travels five times faster, and many times farther than it does in air.
 
Whales, dolphins, porpoises, and other marine mammals have evolved to take advantage of this perfect sonic medium. Just as we rely on sight to survive, they depend on sound to hunt for food, find mates, and detect predators.
 
At any given time, there are up to sixty thousand commercial ships traversing our seas worldwide. Cavitation from propellers and the rumble of engines reverberate through every corner of the ocean.
 
The incessant and increasing cacophony masks whales’ ability to hear and be heard, hindering their ability to prosper and ultimately to survive.
 
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.
 
Sonic Sea is about protecting life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.”
