Is noise pollution killing whales and dolphins?

Humans create a lot of noise in the ocean - from sonar and seismic exploration, to pile-driving when building wind farms; but how might this affect sea life? Thousands of whales and dolphins die every year after becoming stranded on beaches. Dr Maria Morell, from University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, studies their ears to try and work out if hearing damage led to their death. ~ www.bbc.com/news/av/science-environment-53653506/is-noise-pollution-killing-whales-and-dolphins
