today i learned – fri 31st aug 2018

stop doing work and load up the internet! i have a new tool for procrastination! 🦈

#tdil that there is a website out there that lets you track real life sharks in real time! 😱

it was actually my colleague megatron that made me aware of this nugget 😏 … i was having quite a productive day until that moment πŸ™ˆ

this magical website is called ‘ocearch’ (->here<-) and it uses tracking equipment attached to sharks to show you exactly where sharks are/have been 😊 it’s basically a collaboration between scientists … all of which are sharing their data with the shark tracker map πŸ‘πŸ»

it’s genuinely fascinating 😍 as you can use it to see where sharks are/where they’ve been/how far they’ve travelled 😊🦈 i’ve been having a gander at a great white called ‘hilton’ that has been traveling super far recently!

it also tracks a few turtles, seals and alligators … which are equally as amazing 😊 … granted, the alligators don’t travel quite as far πŸ™ˆ

anyway! enough talk, go and have a gander at the website ->here<- … it’s just so awesome 😎

laters πŸ˜… #tdil
