Kate Fitzpatrick: Return of the Whales Print
Return of the Whales
11" x 14" Digital reproduction (paper)
This illustration is based on the resurgence of humpback whales in the waters around New York City. This is an amazing and complicated place for them to be. Amazing because it speaks to the success of years of citizen scientists making a push to clean the bay. Complicated because it’s also one of the busiest waterways in the world and whales are up against massive ships, propellers, anchors and more. But. Progress is progress and the increased sightings of whales is something to celebrate!
