Marine Mammals Threatened by U.S. Navy Training

The U.S. Navy uses sonar and explosives for training purposes in the waters of Hawaii and Southern California. The use of the sonar and explosives will deafen and even kill whales, dolphins and porpoises as they use sound waves to communicate with each other, locate food sources, and orient themselves in marine environments. The death of one killer whale of reproductive age can endanger the existance of the whole species.
The National Marine Fisheries Service has issued permits to the U.S. Navy allowing them to test and train in the Pacific Ocean.

      This is so cruel, and could be prevented. These are gentle animals, and so important to the environment. You could easily go to areas for your training, and I urge you to do so.

      Por que el ser humano tiene que entender que no somos el centro del universo. No tenemos derecho a lastimar a otro ser solo porque nos da la gana... NO ES JUSTO, PERO CON TODOS ESTOS ESFUERZOS SE LOS HAREMOS VER.
