Help us create a safer and quieter ocean for whales!

We call on the EU institutions to adopt Blue Speeds, an EU-wide measure for the implementation of slower ship speeds, as a condition of entry into European ports.

whale supporters have already signed. Let’s get to 60,000!

    You did it! You are helping us turn down the volume and turn up protection for whales.

    Blue Speeds: slower shipping to save the ocean

    Let’s make our ocean safer, quieter and healthier for whales.

    Soundwaves travel further and five times faster
    underwater than in air
    Underwater noise generated by boats and ships interferes with the behaviour of marine animals
    Ship noise level:
    too loud
    0%
    Ship noise level:
    too loud
    Ship noise level:

    What does the ocean sound like?
    Sound is essential for marine animals to communicate, orientate themselves and attract mates
    Causing increased stress levels, disturbance and abandonment of important habitat
    The main reason is
    elevated ship speeds

    Slow down the ship until you hear the whale
