NOAA Fisheries is soliciting competitive applications for the FY2020 Pacific Islands Region Marine Turtle Management and Conservation Program (MTMCP). This program supports conservation, protection, or management actions supporting recovery of Endangered Species Act (ESA) listed sea turtle species occurring within the Pacific Islands region or of aggregations (or species) with linkages to the Pacific Islands region. Such species may migrate through, nest or forage within the region, or are impacted by federally managed activities and relevant to fishery management and recovery obligations.
For the FY2020 funding competition, we are soliciting projects located in:
- Hawai'i and U.S. territories; and
- Internationally in projects located in the Philippines (for, Central West Pacific Green Turtle Distinct Population Segment), Japan (for, North Pacific Loggerhead Turtle Distinct Population Segment), and Indonesia and Solomon Islands (for, West Pacific leatherback turtles).
