New Oceana Animated Maps Show Dolphins and Whales Threatened by Seismic Airgun Blasting in Atlantic Ocean

Oceana

WASHINGTON - Today, Oceana released new animated maps showing dolphins and whales threatened by proposed seismic airgun blasting in the Atlantic Ocean. The maps, which are based on groundbreaking research from Duke University’s Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab, draw from 23 years of data to show us the density of bottlenose dolphins, and endangered fin, humpback and sperm whales overlaid with the current seismic airgun permit application area, over the course of a year.
