Revisiting A Conversation On The Sonic Sea And Sound Pollution On Monday's Access Utah

“Oceans are a sonic symphony. Sound is essential to the survival and prosperity of marine life. But man-made ocean noise is threatening this fragile world.” So say the producers of a documentary film, “Sonic Sea,” which takes us beneath the ocean’s surface to uncover the consequences of increased ocean noise pollution, including the mass stranding of whales around the planet, and looks at what can be done to stop it.

On Monday's AU we’ll talk with Daniel Hinerfeld, co-director of “Sonic Sea” and Director of Multimedia and Film at the Natural Resources Defense Council; and Michael Jasny, Director of NRDC's Marine Mammal Protection Program. We’ll also hear sound clips from the film.”
