ssir.org — In 2012, soon after George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., protesters hit the streets.

A collection of these pinky-size critters can together generate the loudest sounds in shallow waters-so loud that they interfere with SONAR on Navy submarines. A human-shaped sculpture submerged off the coast of Cancun is listening in on, and recording, these shrimp, as well as other ocean noises.
