Additional Information: 

In June 2015, the Shedd Aquarium welcomed a new baby dolphin, and in December they began a naming contest that involved the public and aquarium staff. The public was encouraged to vote on social media using hashtags #teamkolohe or #teammakoa, and aquarium staff were encouraged to vote using buttons like this one. Eventually, Makoa became the name of the dolphin by a large margin.
