When a dead sperm whale washed ashore at Point Reyes National Seashore, scientists discovered that the giant mammal had died of starvation. In a tragic irony, more than 450 pounds of fishing nets and other plastics scrapes were extracted from the belly of this 51 ft. mammal. Given the contents, artists Richard and Judith Lang created the first of several provocative art installations for The Marine Mammal Center located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. "The Ghost Below" is intended to engage visitors and enlighten them about the perils of plastic in our oceans.
Produced by Cynthia Abbott and Jill Lessard for "Seriously Now," a news program broadcast on CMCM TV (Community Media Center of Marin).
