The summer movie season is well underway, and Jurassic World Dominion is one of the most anticipated movies coming out next month. The Jurassic World finale promises a lot of different things, but Universal is now giving viewers the opportunity to be a part of the new normal in Jurassic World. The film’s new website, Dinotracker, uses an interactive globe map to show where all the key dinosaur sightings are taking place.
The Department of Prehistoric Wildlife (DPW), an in-universe organisation, built the website, and the trailer produced by this fictional department debuted exclusively on IGN. The site’s map allows you to search for various events, and a scrolling headline bar at the top of the globe allows you to quickly jump to the most talked-about events throughout the world. When you click on a hot spot, it notifies you about the incident, which dinosaur is involved, the threat level, and allows you to see a short video of the sighting.
In the midst of the Pacific Ocean, for example, a Mosasaurus was discovered. “The cameras aboard a deep-sea survey prospecting platform filmed the moment a Mosasaurus clashed with the superstructure, before heading into deeper seas,” the video’s description read. Each event also has a “learn more” section that leads to the bio of the dinosaur featured in the field guide. This is also accessible via the map’s main menu, and it looks that each Dino that has appeared in the series thus far has a bio.

The bios provide information about each dinosaur’s level of aggression, size, weight, and food, as well as dos and don’ts if you come across one. It also explains what to look for if you believe you’ve entered dinosaur land. The famous T-Rex, for example, has a high level of aggression, and the bio describes how this huge beast’s eyesight is dependent on movement. So, just like a sea bear attack in SpongeBob, stay put!
In any seriousness, this is a fantastic website to explore and learn about how the planet is coping with its new ancient neighbours. It makes you wonder if you could live in a world populated by dinosaurs. It’s terrifying to think about getting caught in traffic because an Apatosaurus is sleeping on the roadway, or going for a run only to have a velociraptor start following you halfway through. Dinosaurs infiltrating drive-in movie theatres and roaming the streets of a metropolis have been seen throughout Dominion’s promotion.
On June 10, 2022, Jurassic World Dominion will roar into theatres. While we wait for dinosaurs to take over the globe, you may check out Dinotracker’s website to stay up with all the latest dinosaur news.
