Everyone can see the coordinates unless the taxon is threatened.
Public coordinates shown as a random point within 10KM of the true coordinates. True coordinates are only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation.

This Gray Whale was seen from a small boat in San Ignacio Lagoon during the calving season. The dense barnacles are diagnostic of the species. In addition, this is the only whale commonly seen in the shallow lagoon at this time of the year.
