Expert Answer:

Noise can have a detrimental effect on animals

(i) by causing stress,

(ii) increasing risk of death by changing the delicate balance in predator/prey detection and avoidance, and by interfering with their use of sounds in communication especially in relation to reproduction and in navigation.

(iii) acoustic overexposure can lead to temporary or permanent loss of hearing.
