(2011). Georgia Aquarium in Heat for Loud Noise: PETA.
Writer for PETA’s article Georgia Aquarium in Heat for Loud Noise addresses a certain danger introduced to animals trapped inside of their tanks. This danger is the reverberations from their own sonar bounce off the walls. This report explains this danger by stating it “leads to a confusion of the entire sensory apparatus, which in turn causes in such a sensitive creature a derangement of mental balance and behavior”. The purpose of this is to make individuals aware of certain cruelties these animals face behind the walls of where the live. The target audience of this is anyone interested in what real dangers captive animals face, but it can be useful to researchers looking into animal danger studies, as well.
