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.

|Why are research and conservation for this species important?|
|"Andrew has been fascinated with sharks for many years. He aspires to be a marine biologist so that he can study and help protect and preserve the ocean creatures. Like many others, he believes that sharks are misunderstood and wants to help the world better understand them. Whale sharks are his favorite breed and is looking forward to the day that he can see one in person."|
