Title: International sea turtle funded projects
Short Name: International sea turtle projects
Status: In Work

PIRO may fund activities for the conservation, protection, and recovery of ESA-listed sea turtle species in international locations. As noted within the U.S. Sea Turtle Recovery Plans, some recovery tasks do not necessarily apply to areas within jurisdiction of the U.S., but must be addressed to recover the species. Tasks in international locations are intended to benefit aggregations of sea turtles that have documented linkages to the PIR, are impacted by PIR activities managed by NOAA/NMFS, or projects that are relevant and applicable to NOAA/NMFS management and ESA recovery obligations. Since 2008, internationally funded projects have occurred (taken place) in Malaysia, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Japan, and Mexico.


To contribute to the conservation and recovery of sea turtle species with documented linkages to the PIR, which include: leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea), hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata), North and South Pacific loggerhead (Caretta caretta) Distinct Population Segments, olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea), and green turtle (Chelonia mydas).


Implementation schedule: 2008 - present
