There's a New Yorker article (A Whale's Afterlife) you might want to read, if you're into stuff like that (death and its usefulness to others, the sea, organisms without mouths and guts, exploration, etc.). It's mesmerizing. You'll learn about a whale they named Rosebud (Do you name things and people and memories after they "die"? That detail was fascinating.) and how they tried to sink it. How they came to visit it where it settled and observed what became of her (she's a girl now okay.) How do whales die anyway? Do they know it, when they're about to go?
