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.

Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"It is amazing to me to be able to swim with a creature whose species has been around for 60 million years and who is so many times our size. By researching whale shark behavior, we unlock clues to the mysteries of the ocean. By trying to protect whale sharks, we protect the history of the world. "
