sorry. the mermaid has been out of the webocean for a few months to recruit more sea creatures to help humans understand climate change. in the picture, you can see an elephant seal carrying a sensor on top of its head to record measurements of south pole bottom waters. this sensor, the mermaid has been told, send information to things called satellites in space, to communicate the data back to the landfolk researchers.
