At first I hesitated to create a video with footage that most people would think is gross. But in the big picture, this video is about science and discovery, and one of National Geographic Society’s grantees doing something very challenging underwater: capturing what happens when a dolphin carcass sinks to the seafloor. Eddie Kisfaludy and his team were able to secure the carcass, build a structure for the time-lapse cameras, and keep them running continuously for almost a year. It was no small feat!
