Pacific Leatherback Turtle Recovery Plan (2003)

The world's largest sea turtle, the Pacific Leatherback turtle, makes annual feeding migrations from nesting beaches in Southeast Asia all the way to Coastal BC. In 2007 WFT was part of the Recovery Team, which developed a rescue strategy for this remarkable animal.

With the coming into force of the new Canadian Species at Risk Act, Rescue Strategies and Action Plans are being prepared for all Canadian species designated as endangered.

With support from Fisheries and Oceans Canada
