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.

Meet the Adopters
|"To protect Whale Sharks fully, we have to understand how they live and what they do. Through research we will hopefully get a clue of the big picture below the ocean surface. Whale Sharks are not just important to the aquatic environment, but also for us as humans to be able to enjoy their presence in future generations. Swimming with a Whale Shark is an experience which is very hard to describe - leaving a memory that will last a lifetime. I am grateful to be able to swim with these creatures in the wild and capture them on camera."|
