Acoustic Pollution in the Oceans

Dive yourself in the exciting work of Natacha Aguilar de Soto, a marine biologist committed to the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises, as well as the marine environment in general.

From her base in the Canary Islands, Aguilar investigates the human impact on the oceans, especially noise pollution caused by maritime traffic and other activities. Her studies reveal how this noise affects marine life, from disrupted communication to difficulty finding food. Additionally, she highlights the importance of protecting marine biodiversity to combat global climate change. 💙🌊🐋
