National Protected Species Toolbox Initiative

Environmental change and anthropogenic impacts are a serious conservation and management concern for protected megafauna species such as sea turtles, marine mammals, sharks, and seabirds. NOAA Fisheries is developing quantitative analytical tools that will improve protected species assessments and better analyze impacts from human activities, research and development capabilities, and address critical management concerns.
