These videos show how navy sonar affects marine mammals like killer whales and dolphins…even at distances of 12-15 miles away from the ship. You can hear the hideous sounds and see the animals swimming, some erratically, to shore in an attempt to escape the painful sound.

The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals in California has ruled that the low-frequency active sonar (LFA) systems used by the US Navy for training missions violates the Marine Mammal protection Act, and negatively impacts whales, dolphins, and walruses who rely on sound to navigate the seas.
The impacts of Navy sonar on whales and dolphins are now well-documented. This 2017 research paper by E. C. M. Parsons digs into the details and includes links to numerous studies. A vital read!

This is not a short piece, but the similarities of behind-the-scenes manipulation of facts, complete ineptitude and publicized rationale, by U.S. administration war-mongers of the then-Iraqi war and today’s dealings with Iran are downright scary. ~ Don Chapin
