2017 Pacific Islands Region Marine Turtle Management and Conservation Program: The National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA/NMFS) is soliciting competitive applications for the FY2017 Pacific Islands Region Marine Turtle Management and Conservation Program (MTMCP) 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 of aggregations (or species) with linkages to the PIR. Such species may migrate through, nest or forage within the PIR, are impacted by PIR federally managed activities, or 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. Of sea turtle species occurring in the region, priority species for this FFO include: Western Pacific leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), and green turtle (Chelonia mydas) Distinct Population Segments (DPS) of the Central North Pacific, Central West Pacific, and Central South Pacific. For the FY2017 funding competition, we are soliciting projects under two priorities. Priority 1 is for management and outreach projects located on Oahu (Hawaii), and priority 2 is for international projects with a direct connection to PIR turtles. See more information below on each priority.
