Title and Description:
Status Review for the Green Turtle, Chelonia mydas
The Green Turtle Status Review combined and analyzed all biological information on the green turtle, identified potential Distinct Population Segments (DPSs) of the species, and reviewed the status (stable, increasing, declining) of each population. The information in the report was in the 12-Month Finding on the green turtle in response to a petition (to list the Hawaiian population as a DPS and delist it), and in a proposed rule to identify and list DPSs as endangered or threatened.
