Can anything be done about noise and marine mammals? Yes. Read about NOAA’s “Ocean Noise Strategy Roadmap” summarized in this New York Times article and show your concern by sending comments to: Comment.ONS@noaa.gov Your subject line should say “ONS Roadmap Comments” and email your comments until July 1, 2016. Include any citations to scientific literature you know of, as this is a search for information, too.
