NOAA has a team of scientists who study sea turtles to better understand their population status and trends, movements and behavior, life history, and stressors. We are especially focused on understanding the bycatch of turtles in commercial fisheries and developing ways to reduce and eliminate bycatch. Our teams also work internationally to build capacity and work cooperatively with other nations also working to conserve these wide-ranging, shared species.
