If you zoom in too quickly, Google Maps may claim that it does not have the needed maps. Zoom back out, wait a few seconds to allow maps to load in the background, and then zoom in again.

If more than one point is mapped for the marked individual, the map also displays chevrons to guide you from the first sighting (shown as a green icon) to each subsequent sighting over time. The chevrons do NOT represent a path of travel, just a sequential link across time.

Darcy Bradley
"A healthy and stable shark population is a good indication of a healthy marine environment. With whale sharks protected in only ten percent of the nearly 100 countries they visit worldwide, the time is now to work together to better understand this species. Only then can we hope to better protect the largest fish in the ocean. "
