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.

|"We at Kings Ningaloo Reef Tours are strong supporters of any type of whale shark research. From a tourism operator's perspective the more we can take care of this natural wonder the better it is for our customers and therefore for us. The public needs to be educated in regards to the preservation of this magnificent creature. Without whale shark research it is almost impossible to understand their migratory and breeding patterns. I believe the companies here on the Ningaloo Reef and the whale shark researchers are leaders in protection and conservation of this majestic fish. The whale shark researchers should be supported so they can educate the rest of the world on how to preserve this mysterious creature. The Ningaloo Reef is one of the last unspoiled fringing reef natural wonders and should be protected at all costs for future generations."|
