whale fall

Whale Fall (after life of a whale) from Sharon Shattuck on Vimeo.

Did you know that whales lives about 50-75 years, and that one whale can support a community of organisms for another 50-75 years after its death? As this beautiful cut paper, puppet video shows, "when a whale dies, the story has just begun." And if this video makes you interested in finding out more, have a listen to Radiolab's Loops episode for the inspiration behind the video.
