LGVN Oceans - Dolphins, Whales, Seals
Found that Sonar is Killing Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises.
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.
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.
