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
|"I have always been mesmerized by the beauty of the ocean and then mostly about the bigger animals in it. That a whale shark can move so elegantly is something I can watch for a long time. To lose this animal is just not an option and since change starts with yourself, I adopted this whale shark."|
