This dangerous process is repeated every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day for days for weeks at a time. The air guns are so loud coastal ecosystems are destroyed and marine mammals, sea turtles and other marine wildlife are injured. Impacts include temporary and permanent hearing loss, disruption of mating and feeding, beach stranding and deaths. Whales and dolphins rely on their hearing to find food, communicate and reproduce.
