Save the Memes

You have to check this out. Zooniverse has put together a hilarious web site called Save the Memes. It’s a light-hearted way of spreading the story about our Save Snapshot Serengeti campaign. And while it’s good for that… it’s perhaps a little distracting for us scientists, too!




Give it a go with some pre-selected images. Or, you can turn your favorite Snapshot Serengeti image into a meme from the Talk pages now using the “Meme This!” button.



About Margaret Kosmala

I am an ecologist exploring the complex dynamics of plant and animal systems. I am especially interested in understanding how species communities change over time and how humans impact them.

    Maybe I’m just an old marshmallow, but this makes me teary-eyed when I consider the strength of a mother’s instinct to protect their young

    Sorry to bother you with this, but having played around a bit with the lol-animal generator (I’m afraid I can’t bring myself to call the pictures themselves memes), I’ve found one or two issues with it, and if possible would like to suggest an enhancement. (I know – we’re never satisfied!)

    Would you be able to supply me with a URL where I can get in touch with the people who maintain the “meme” generator page?
