Whales Would Probably Like Us To Make Less Noise In The Ocean.  Alasdair Wilkins, Vacativ.com, writes:

Whales’ haunting songs already suggest a complex form of communication beyond our easy understanding. Now it turns out we only knew half the story, as whales might also communicate through low-frequency vibrations they send through the water. Biologists only recently discovered this ability, and it might mean all our shipping and undersea drilling have been making a ton of unwanted, vibration-heavy noise for whales.
