LGVN Oceans - Dolphins, Whales, Seals

Evidence Found that Sonar is Killing Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises.

It's been discovered that Naval warships are causing death to hundreds of whales and dolphins world-wide through the use of military sonar. Spanish scientists in the Canaries have found new evidence showing that mammals are dying from decompression: better known to divers as "the Bends".
The deaths are linked to low frequency active underwater sonar, used by the ships to hunt submarines. When the ships trigger the sonar, whales and dolphins become highly disorientated and subsequently rise to the surface much too quickly. Some species of whales, known to spend a lot of time in deep sea areas, are being found dead on beaches just hours after naval warships have carried out sonar based manoeuvres in the immediate area.
One theory as to what brought the bottle-nosed whale up the River Thames in January 2006 is because the British Navy were conducting training manoeuvres along the east coast of Britain - using sonar.
