For the week of 20 August 2018
Join us Thursday, October 11, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC for a webinar on Listening to our Sanctuaries: Understanding and Reducing the Impacts of Underwater Noise in Marine Protected Areas presented by Leila Hatch of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.
Increasing levels of human activity are contributing increasing levels of underwater noise to the world's aquatic places. In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is the federal agency most responsible for preventing harm to aquatic animals and their habitats. This presentation will discuss NOAA's interest in conserving acoustic habitat quality in addition to minimizing adverse physical and behavioral impacts of noise to specific species. It will also focus on the role that National Marine Sanctuaries are playing in NOAA's Ocean Noise Strategy through both science and management initiatives.
