The National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA/NMFS) is soliciting competitive applications for the FY2013 Pacific Islands Region Marine Turtle Recovery Program to fund conservation, protection, or management actions supporting recovery of Endangered Species Act (ESA) listed sea turtle species occurring within the Pacific Islands Region (PIR) or aggregations that may be shared between the PIR and other Pacific nations. NOAA/NMFS will consider internationally-based projects targeting sea turtle populations that originate from the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (i.e., from areas outside U.S. jurisdiction) but migrate through or forage within the PIR, are impacted by PIR activities managed by NOAA/NMFS, and projects that are otherwise relevant to NOAA/NMFS management and recovery obligations.
The PIR is comprised of the exclusive economic zones (EEZs) adjacent to the State of Hawaii, U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), and the U.S. Pacific Remote Island Areas (PRIAs) of Jarvis, Johnston, Wake, Howland and Baker Islands, Kingman Reef, and Palmyra and Midway Atolls. Sea turtle species with documented linkages to the PIR include: leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea), hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata), North and South Pacific loggerhead (Caretta caretta) Distinct Population Segments, green (Chelonia mydas), and olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea).
