Mapping

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.

Steve Lindfield
 
Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"Sharks have been on our planet for over 500 million years; that is before the dinosaurs! Fishing is currently decimating most of the world's shark populations. But we are only now realising the importance of these apex predators in controlling the health and resilience of marine ecosystems. We need sharks."
