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.

"Can not be difficult to understand how important the sharks are to keep the sea environment well and healthy once they are the top of the food chain which means fundamental. Come on people, they are such wonderful creatures such as the lions are in the jungle and nobody considers them as monsters. We are human-beings which means we are intelligent enough to change our mind and protect our planet while still have time."
