Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary, "Sonic Sea," followed by a conversation with Dr. Leila Hatch, Marine Ecologist, Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, NOAA and Barbara Moran, WBUR Senior Producing Editor, Environment. "Sonic Sea," narrated by Rachel McAdams, is about protecting life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.
Hatch is a marine ecologist with the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay and featured in the film. This area has experienced dramatic increases in shipping and she studies how low frequency noise emitted by large ships and other vessels impacts marine mammals who also rely on low frequency signals for communication, foraging, navigating and caring for their young.
