today i learned – thurs 8th mar 2018

yesterday’s animal fact made me miss the blue planet specials that we used to have 🙈

as such, we’re heading back underwater to enjoy an aquatic animal fact! 😍

#tdil the us navy legit has dolphins and sea lions on its staff roster! 🐬

now, i’ve always heard rumours about this kind of thing … but i never actually thought that it was an actual thing 😅

turns out that it totally is a thing and it costs a whole $14million a year in funding 💰 apparently that marine life don’t come cheap! 🤑 (seriously, i might have to change species and career!)

but yeah, appaz the us navy employs 85 dolphins and 50 sea lions (well, they did in 2015). their tasks? rescue lost naval swimmers and locate scary sea mines 💥

they’re pretty damn good at it as well … over the years they’ve assisted in saving more lives than specially trained lifesavers #lifeguardsbeslacking 💁🏻‍♀️

well, they’re deffo doing something right … the pentagon has budgeted financial backing for the mammal navy peeps until 2020!

and there we have it, another fun time underwater animal fact 😍🐬 it was pretty quick and fairly useless but, who knows, maybe it’ll be helpful in a quiz one day 🤷🏻‍♂️

and we out 🤘🏻 #tdil
