Dear Colleagues,

We provide a summary for the importance behind reducing boat noise in the whale-watching industry, and highlight the need for incorporation of a boat noise emission threshold into whale-watching guidelines: https://theconversation.com/whale-watching-guidelines-dont-include-boat-noise-its-time-they-did-199977. Perhaps your local or National government would be interested in considering whale-watch boat noise (e.g., by only using quieter boats)?

Authors: Dr Kate Sprogis, Associate Prof. Fredrik Christiansen and Dr Patricia Arranz.

Kind regards,
