In this animation, whales morph into bizarre, early scientific illustrations. Before photography, researchers relied upon memory and guesswork to draw studies of animals.

As noise pollution threatens whales’ abilities to communicate to find their pod, mates, and food, we risk relegating whales to the status of memory and image – permanently.
