Scottish Parliament Debates Animals and Wildlife Bill
In June of 2020, the Scottish Parliament carefully reviewed, discussed and debated the Animals and Wildlife Bill, including recommendations from a recent session of the Environment, Climate Change & Land Reform Committee. A key issue was an amendment to prohibit primitive acoustic deterrent devices (ADDs) because of the harm they’re known to cause seals and other marine mammals.
GenusWave followed the discussions closely, since the company agrees that conventional ADDs are harmful and largely ineffective. GenusWave’s Targeted Acoustic Startle Technology (TAST™) deters predatory seals – without damaging their hearing or disrupting surrounding wildlife or habitats.Go Back
