CNN Philippines highlighted the fact that they’re amongst the top 5 polluters, referring to the striking example of a young goosed beaked whale that died in the Davao Gulf as researchers pulled out approximately 90 pounds of plastic from inside it.

Ship noise extends to frequencies used by endangered killer whales

When an endangered orca is in hot pursuit of an endangered salmon, sending out clicks and listening for their echoes in the murky ocean near Seattle, does the noise from the nearby shipping lane interfere with them catching dinner? To find out, scientists measured underwater noise as ships passed their study site 3,000 times. This unprecedented characterization of ship noise will aid in the understanding of the potential effects on marine life, and help with possible mitigation strategies.
