Have you ever been woken up by a jackhammer hammering along right outside your window early in the morning and thought to yourself – what awful thing is this? Now imagine you are underwater and you don’t know where that noise is coming from, you don’t know why that noise is even happening, and what to do to get away from it? That is what our lovely gentle giants are experiencing a lot and it’s not exactly like they can put on ear plugs and go on their merry way. So in this week’s episode I’ll be talking about noise pollution, why we need to consider it and why it’s a massive issue in the underwater world. I’ll also be talking about the difference between sound and noise and why you should care!
