Add comment on:Loggerhead Sea Turtles Win Largest Critical Habitat Designation in History
After more than five years of delay, threatened loggerhead sea turtles today won federal protection of critical habitat — 685 miles of beaches from Mississippi to North Carolina and more than 300,000 square miles of ocean — on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Following a 2013 lawsuit by conservation groups, the federal government designated important nesting beaches and ocean waters off several states as protected areas essential for loggerhead recovery in the largest designation of “critical habitat” ever.
