Whales use clicks, whistles and songs to locate food, raise calves, and find mates. But underwater noise pollution—from ship propellers, seismic booms made in the search for oil and gas, and construction—makes it difficult for whales to communicate. It can even damage their hearing.

For thousands of years the Arctic Ocean has been a natural sound sanctuary for marine mammals. But as sea ice melts due to climate change, more industrial activity is moving into Arctic waters, bringing with it dramatic increases in underwater noise. Natural sound in the region is in danger of being overwhelmed by an increasingly loud, man-made racket, putting narwhals, belugas and bowhead whales at risk.
