Effect of Human Noise on Animals

The researchers from the University of Bristol in England have discovered the impact of human-made sounds on animals. The study showed an animal’s use of information by tracking them at fatal risk of being thrust by predators. As per the scientists, sometimes the human-made noises can cause animals problems through masking of valuable audio information. Additionally, the scientists have explained that this study can explain that there could be disruption to the use of olfactory information.  Moreover, the human-made noise affects decision-making procedure in the animals as per the scientists.

The scientists stated that they recorded sounds of dwarf mongoose on a trial basis. The scientists observed the samples and demonstrated local noise. Additionally, the scientists said the road noise playbacks affect the mongoose, negatively. Moreover, the research showed that the additional noise making put mongooses more vulnerable to danger. Along with mongoose, human-made noises and sounds increasingly affects other animals such as mammals, birds, fish, insects and amphibians, said the scientist.
