Did you know that humpback whales can swim through thousands of kilometers of open ocean in an almost perfectly straight line? New high-tech tracking devices have enabled scientists to learn this, but they have no idea how the whales manage to navigate. One whale also can sing a specific song that will then travel, literally, around the world's waters from whale to whale. When I heard this reported on NPR, I was humbled, and guilt-ridden, because I had the overwhelming suspicion that whales are much smarter than we are. Also, we know so very little of the complex inter-realtionships between trees, and microbes in the soil, and all the other factors that influence one another in an ecosystem.
So we just go ahead and smash it because we can. I can't wait to see this film. Maybe it will change the world. If you go to the youtube, there are more clips, and you can contribute to the fund to finish the documentary if you want - a project 10 years in the making.
