Educational Interactive "Sounds of the Sea" Exhibit at the Woods Hole Science Aquarium

The Passive Acoustics Group proudly brings you the "Sounds of the Sea" exhibit. Focusing on ocean noise, marine mammal sounds, and human impact, the multimedia display located in the Woods Hole Aquarium allows you to listen and learn about the many noises produced in our oceans. Expose your ears to a new world of sounds beneath the ocean's surface.

Sounds are produced by marine mammals, fish, and even some invertebrates. Come learn how they are used, and how human activities have an impact on different marine species. While exploring different biological and anthropogenic sounds, visitors can read information and scroll through pictures of each sound source. Listen to individual species, compare one sound to another, or record your own voice to compare to your favorite animal!

Can't wait to get started? Check out the NOAA Protected Species Branch educational sounds page. Explore more through Voices in the Sea.
