Sperm whales offset their carbon footprint by stimulating plant growth with their own faeces, scientists have discovered.

This stimulates the growth of phytoplankton - which absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis.
Phytoplankton are marine plants which are eaten in turn by tiny marine animals - zooplankton - which are then eaten by larger sea animals.
