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

Jenni Barrett
"Whale sharks are amongst the most graceful, serene, awesome animals I have encountered. We need to learn more about them in order to ensure that those who sadly don't understand how special they are, will be forced to stop hunting them for their fins, and endangering the species. I am therefore so delighted to support Ecocean's research and conservation work through this adoption. It's the best present I could ever have been given, and I'm delighted to welcome A-681 to the family! :-)"
