Sonic Superpowers: Listening into the World of the Whales in the Great Bear Fjord system

"The ocean is a world of sound. Where light fails to penetrate the deep, acoustics is the primary tool for whales to communicate, find prey, avoid predators, navigate, and attract mates. Whales are masters of sound and they are vulnerable to noise that humans generate through marine exploration and vessel traffic." - Dr. Ben Hendricks, University of Victoria
