Question

What is the Navy doing to better understand marine mammal behavior?

Answer

The Navy, as a world leader in marine mammal research, invests millions of dollars annually to better understand marine mammals in order to best protect them while meeting our national security objectives. We continue to build and strengthen one of the world’s most robust research programs designed to improve our understanding of marine mammal ecology and population dynamics, potential effects of man-made sound, and how to best monitor for marine mammal presence.
