Tohorā Sonic Blue


Marine Conservation Fine Art Print Tohorā Sonic Blue’

This print is based on the Tohorā (Bryde’s Whale) and an imagining of the human-created, underwater noise pollution that affects marine life around the world. Resident Brydes Whales can be found year-round in the Hauraki Gulf, frequently seen off Tiritiri Matangi and Waiheke Islands. One threat to the Tohorā is low-frequency underwater noise pollution. The noise can interrupt the normal behaviour of Brydes whales by hindering their ability to use sound, and disrupting their ability to communicate, choose mates, find food, avoid predators, and navigate. Wind powered ships, noise reducing propellers, floating wind turbines and bubble curtains that muffle construction noise are some examples of how we can mitigate this pollution.
