On Ocean Seismic Testing  

The World Listening Project is concerned with connections between listening and soundscapes, and supports creative and civic-minded actions that affirm and protect our natural environment and its sounds.

Seismic testing in the ocean kills marine life and devastates marine soundscapes. Also known as “Seismic surveying” and “Air gun blasting,” it horribly injures marine animals that rely on echolocation to survive, such as whales and dolphins.

The World Listening Project stands with those who want seismic testing in the ocean to stop.
