The Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins Tursiops aduncus are the only cetacean species that can be observed visually on
coastal areas of Jeju Island and regarded as one of valuable tour resources. We attempted to figure out location and
timing information of the dolphin sightings collected from two major social media, Naver Cafe and Instagram. 142
of dolphin sighting information were derived from 2,501 dolphin related postings on Naver Cafe between 2004 to
2017. 292 informative postings also were found on Instagram through hashtag searching. The number of posts about
dolphin sighting was not frequent until 2014. Since 13 posts were found in 2014, dramatic increase of the sighting
numbers was accelerated as 38 in 2015, 93 in 2016 and 269 in 2017. 195 (45.7%) from coastal area of Daejeong-eup,
south-western part of the Island, were posted. The number of dolphin sightings also high from Gujwa-eup(n=50,
11.7%), Hangyeong-myeon (n=49, 11.5%), Seongsan-eup (n=38, 8.9%) and Seogwipo-si (n=34, 8.0%). Our results
show that social media data has a high potential to be used as a data source for study of distribution pattern of the
dolphins.
