Working Together on Ocean Noise

Following up on our Spring Event about the dangers of Ocean Noise to marine life, W20 is spearheading an exciting effort to minimize noise pollution.  After hearing concerns raised by W20, General Electric engineers met with top experts in the field of ocean noise and are focusing on the noise produced by shipping. Together, we hope to understand this problem so we can mitigate our impacts.  Stay tuned for important developments and ways you can be involved!

Public Overwhelmingly Supports Marine Protected Areas:
Help us support Cashes Ledge and the New England Canyons and Sea Mounts today!

New England's underwater paradise, Cashes Ledge, is highly valued for its ecological significance as a fisheries nursery.  The New England Canyons and Seamounts are home to beautiful and fragile cold water corals.
