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.

|"One of the best ways to be good stewards of the oceans and all their creatures is to proactively support whale shark conservation and research efforts. Ecocean is committed to whale shark research and data collection. Frank and I are committed to Ecocean and to educating the public in all areas of animal conservation.
The information they have collected greatly enhances our knowledge about whale sharks. It increases our awareness about conservation of the earth's natural resources. We really enjoy the opportunity to contribute to Ecocean's database, and we get the chance to observe and swim the largest fish in the ocean, the whale shark!"
