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.

|"Whale sharks are a key part of the food chain. Without this fish, which is at the top of the food chain, the balance of a sensitive and fragile ecosystem could crumble. As humans, we often forget that we are part of the web, not the top of it. If the whale sharks disappear and the ocean web is unbalanced we may find our very own existence is in peril. We must protect the entire web of life if we hope to continue to exist. Co-existence is vital."|
