  • Description:
    "This Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) was prepared in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. #4321, et seq.), as implemented by the Council of Environmental Quality regulations (40 C.F.R. #1500 1508); and NOAA Administrative Order Series (NAO) 216 6, Environmental Review Procedures for Implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, of May 20, 1999. The green, hawksbill, loggerhead, leatherback, and olive ridley sea turtles are all listed under section 4(c) of the Endangered Species Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C. #1531, et seq.). Under the proposed action, the Marine Turtle Assessment Program (MTAP) proposes to continue its research activities with the addition of field data collection and new studies in the U.S. Insular Areas of the Pacific Islands Region. The research activities include collecting biological and ecological data on marine turtle stocks in the U.S. Insular Area of the Pacific Islands Region, providing analytical population assessment modeling to, and collaborating with, marine turtle researchers across the Pacific Islands Region, and contributing to the scientific literature through publications relevant to the recovery of these stocks. The MTAP also includes respoding to and aiding stranded turtles. The potential impacts on the human environment of the proposed action, and a range of reasonable alternatives, are discussed and analyzed in this PEA"--Summary.
