I can see how the noise pollution (i.e. sound of the airplane) could be disturbing. It's not only disturbing to animals, but also humans. The same is for when a person lives by the train tracks. However, I know this is not just about us humans. This world is about the animals. I wonder if they could go deaf from the noises? Do birds and other animals have more sensitive ears? (If there was something in the article I missed about that part of it, I am sorry in advance. I skimmed it kind of fast.)

That study doesn't even need research, its simple logic that no animal would want to stay in or near a noisy place. Animals are peaceful creatures and the only noise they know is the waterfall, and when they are eating. Noise pollution and human so called development where by they build houses next to the wild parks has send the animals away.

I can quite believe this because I know how it feels when I want a little peace and quite. As a human I am pretty used to many unusual noises, but animals in the wild are not. The only noise they may hear is each other, rain or thunderstorms. Anything else, vehicles, planes etc would be disturbing. This is sure to bring on stress because they don't know what it is.
