          Project Goal

          Create a system to protect whales from collisions with ships

          Location: Canary Islands

          "The more noise we put into the ocean, the more we affect the way sea dwellers communicate and live. There is now not a single space in the oceans that is free from noise pollution."

          Michel André, a 2002 Rolex Awards Laureate, has just completed successful first-stage trials of the first ever whale anti-collision system. But, he says, his research raises a greater issue – the pollution of the world’s oceans with human noise.
