Social Media and Monk Seal Monitoring

Ooops, I forgot to post about the January 2nd “Wavelengths Surface Interval” upload.

You can learn more about Hawaiian Monk Seals and NOAA’s research programs here.


Above is the New Year’s Day Monk Seal post I talked about.

Some of the images I found by searching #monkseal on instagram above. On the left she’s not really kissing the monk seal. It looks like she set that up from a distance.

The selfie data I used in the intro is from the following sources:

Millennials Expected to Take 25,000 Selfies in Lifetime

24 Billion Selfies Uploaded on Google Per Year

Study of Indian University Students

Selfie Museum Opening in Los Angeles

Man Drowns While Taking Selfie

The next Wavelengths episode is on “Super Coral” watch for it this Tuesday.

Until then, see you on instagram.
