Short Film Illustrates What Happens to Whale Carcasses After Death [Video]


This video by Sharon Shattuck and Flora Lichtman of Sweet Fern Productions, which was done for Radiolabin collaboration with Lynn Levy, depicts what happens when a whale dies in the ocean. But it isn’t gross. It’s actually, strangely enough, kind of beautiful and touching because it’s done with colorful puppets accompanied by string music. In a world we don’t generally get to see, a whale’s remains will sink to the bottom of the ocean floor upon the end of its life. For the next 50 to 75 years, that whale will support a whole new ecosystem. It pretty much donates a second life — a whale’s life span is also 50 to 75 years — to creating more life.
