This year has seen the publication of a series of papers which provide really important jigsaw pieces in how harbour porpoises exist on a day to day basis, and how they might be affected by being disturbed by underwater noise (e.g. from pile driving, seismic geophysical surveys or shipping). In recent months, a number of papers [...]
