Scientists call for #seismic testing ban to protect the world's #rarest #Dolphins #Maui | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Some of the world's leading marine mammal scientists are calling on the New Zealand government to stop and ban seismic testing in the habitat of the world's rarest sub-species of dolphin.
Marian Locksley's insight:

With just 55 thought to be remaining the Maui’s dolphin (Cephalorhynchus hectori maui) lives off the west coast of North Island in New Zealand. The scientists believe that noise from the seismic testing could damage the hearing of the dolphins and also drive them into fishing grounds where they could be caught in nets.

To better understand the movements and behaviors of the world's biggest creatures, researchers at University of Washington have turned to an instrument normally used to measure the world itself.

Via whale watching
Marian Locksley's insight:

 

 

Despite their size, whales are some of the least understood animals on Earth. Their global range and sheer mass makes them difficult to study. But understanding whale's swimming behaviors and feeding habits is of great interest to conservationists who want to keep whale populations healthy.
