Description

With scientific findings of trash deposits, warming ocean temperatures, and other climate changing realities it is no surprise to any of us that marine species are in danger of declining populations and need recovery action for sustainability.

This report you will learn that it provides a snapshot of the status of the domestic species and the critical work to conserve and recover under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Recovery as defined within, “is the process of restoring listed species and their ecosystems to the point they no longer require the protection of the ESA.”

You will also find a section for “Species in the Spotlight” that covers detailed information about specific species such as:

  • Atlantic Salmon
  • Central California Cost Coho
  • Cook Inlet Beluga Whales
  • Hawaiian Monk Seal
  • And more

The report includes highly informative charts and graphs as well as extensive photography of ocean habitats and ecosystems that offers a visual representation of these species that may appeal to students of marine biology and professors associated with NOAA and other partners that support these ecosystems through their work.
