Whales in an Ocean of Noise: Acoustic Impacts on Marine Life

Brackendale Art Gallery Theatre Teahouse 41950 Government Rd., Brackendale, Squamish, Columbia Britannica V0N, Canada

This event takes place on unceded Coast Salish Territory.

Speakers are:

Kathy Heise, a Research Associate at the Vancouver Aquarium, has an extensive background in marine research and conservation, and has been involved in research on whales and dolphins since the mid-1980’s. Using underwater microphones (hydrophones) Kathy has spent countless hours listening to sounds ranging from the haunting calls of killer whales to the popping sounds of snapping shrimp.
Kathy will highlight some of the different ways that marine animals use sound, as well as some of the ‘unwanted’ sources of sound that humans introduce into the marine environment. Over the years, she has worked to highlight anthropogenic noise as a critically important component of water quality, and one that we have a responsibility to manage. As development of ocean-based industries move forward, their acoustic footprint in the underwater soundscape must be incorporated into management and planning decisions.

Eoin Finn, Bowyer Island resident, PhD (Physical Chemistry) and MBA (International Business), will complement Kathy's talk with a look at LNG carriers, increased tanker traffic and impacts on the Salish Sea and Howe Sound.

We hope you can join us!
