Anthropogenic Noise! (Human sound pollution)

Anthropogenic Noise! (Human sound pollution)

February 17, 2021

HELLO? CAN YOU HEAR US? This week we're looking at the problem of anthropogenic noise, or human sound pollution, and how it creates real predicaments for our wildlife both above and below the waves. A significant problem that can be solved as simply as it started, but is there enough drive from policy makers? Can animals adapt their mating calls and find food in a human-dominated soundscape? Can fish still find their way home? What does Emma do with all of her spare onions? Only one way to find out - tune into our frequency and give us a listen.
