According to the website Whales and Dolphins Watch, the US Navy has permission to kill, maim & harass whales, dolphins & other cetaceans 31
million times over the next 5 years, despite the outcry of hundreds of thousands of citizens.
The problem: Low-frequency Activesonar signals destroy a whale’s ability to navigate. Whales move through sound, vibration and instinct. This leads to an early and painful death.
Go to the website and view the photos of the whales hemorrhaging (graphic warning alert). Sound penetrates an animal’s body when immersed in water. This effect can cause tissue rupture and hemorrhage.
The solution: Find alternatives that will allow humans and all life forms on Earth to live harmoniously together. They honor all who have served in the United States Military and our desire is to work together to find solutions.
Whale and Dolphin Watch is a grass roots organization committed to bringing awareness to the public of the US Navy’s history of killing, maiming & harassing thousands of whales and dolphins through their underwater sonar sound programs. Their commitment takes action to stop or call attention to those that kill and pollute until new technology is embraced and in place to protect all sea life.
