Excerpt: I am writing to encourage you to oppose all funding and continuance of the LWAD sonar detection program currently being carried out by the Navy. While I understand the need to identify submarines in order to protect American interests, I feel very strongly that allowing this kind of loud sonar to interrupt communication among whales, leading (as the Navy themselves have admitted) to mass stranding, is a profound threat to all layers of marine life and so to our global well-being as humans. There is a large body of research on this kind of sonar detection and its effects--namely destroying the inner ears of whales (documented by Navy as well as conservation researchers), interrupting key communication systems, disrupting feeding and mating, and disorienting whales so that they beach in large numbers.
