Acoustic mitigation devices are one of industry-standard solutions for preventing adverse effects of marine infrastructural development works, such as physical interaction with construction equipment or exposure to high levels of underwater sound, they are able to temporarily remove wildlife from a project site and potentially harmful activities. However, not all acoustic mitigation devices are the same, FaunaGuard is a set of species-specific devices which are available for marine contractors and other interested parties to hire. These innovative, welfare-first modular devices create a marine mammal exclusion zone by targeting their respective hearing ranges and repelling them with specialised underwater sound patterns.
