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

Cynthia Wigren
"The whale shark is the largest living fish, yet we know very little about the species. It is important for people to get involved by supporting shark research and conservation. With shark populations declining at alarming rates, these magnificent animals desperately need our help. Adopt a shark today! "
Cil Bloomfield and Ryan Smith
"Sharks are an integral part of our ecosystem, one we need to protect and conserve with the utmost care. "
