  • Description:
    "The loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) was listed as threatened throughout its range on July 28, 1978, under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA), and has received Federal protection since that time. Therefore, the entire species is the listed entity. However, in this recovery plan, we have identified recovery units for the Northwest Atlantic loggerhead population. Establishing recovery units is a useful tool for species occurring across wide ranges with multiple populations, varying ecological pressures, or different threats in different parts of their range. By using this approach, we were able to set recovery goals for each unit and will be able to measure their contribution toward recovery of the Northwest Atlantic loggerhead population"--Executive summary.
