Discovery's Sonic Sea: Screening and Panel Discussion

On June 8, 2015 a coalition of conservation, environmental and wildlife organizations are held a screening and panel discussion on "Sonic Sea", a Discovery Channel documentary that explores the harmful impacts of rising noise levels in the Earth’s oceans.

The federal government recently rolled out a draft roadmap on how excessive ocean noise affects animal habitats and explores how ocean noise can be reduced. The panel discussion focused on what Congress can do to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) efforts to protect life in our waters from the destructive effects of ocean noise pollution.
