I am dedicating this shot to the cause of our ocean mammals....the whales, dolphins, and animals that depend on sonar for navigation and communication.

While our navy continues to employ sonar testing technology in our oceans depths, these creatures are beaching themselves in a desperate attempt to escape the unbearable sonar waves that cause them to bleed from their eyes and ears, and eventually die a cruel and heart breaking death!

They can't outswim it, and leaping means only moments of relief. Navy sonar testing spreads across the ocean floor traveling hundreds of miles.
