Perspectives on Ocean Science Lecture

Can You Hear Me Now? Animals Coping With An Increasingly Noisy Ocean

Ana Sirovic, marine bioacoustician

February 10: 7-8 p.m.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Many marine animals produce a variety of audible as well as infra- and ultra-sonic sounds for navigating, finding food, mating, and many other vital behaviors. With human use of the world’s oceans on the rise, background noise levels in the marine realm are increasing. Join Ana Sirovic as she discusses how ocean noise varies across the Pacific Ocean and what this may mean for whales, fishes, and other animals that rely on sounds for their survival.
