The second edition of Alaska Natives and American Laws does a magnificent job of tracing the history of federal and state treatment. NMFS/PIRO’s Protected Resources Division (PRD) is dedicated to protecting and recovering endangered and threatened species of sea turtles, monk seals, cetaceans, corals, and other species in the Pacific Islands Region as mandated by the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA).

    History: The Marine Mammal Commission (MMC) was established in under Title II of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which came about in part as a result of growing concern among scientists and the public that some species and populations of marine mammals could face depletion, or even extinction, as a result of human Act, which was the first legislation anywhere in the world. Given the potential for 'takes' under the Marine Mammal Protection Act or the Endangered Species Act, the conferees direct that in no case shall any release be attempted unless authorized by a scientific research permit issued by the Secretary of Commerce under the appropriate statutory authority.

    The five species of sea turtles found off the southeast Atlantic coast are protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Many marine mammal and seabird species occurring off our shores are also listed as endangered or threatened under the ESA. Section 7 of the ESA, requires all Federal agencies to participate in the conservation and. The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) was enacted in , and was amended in and in The MMPA prohibits, with certain exceptions, the “take” of marine mammals in U.S. waters and by U.S. citizens on the high seas, and the importation of marine mammals and marine mammal .

Congress declared its policy that Federal agencies utilize their authority to further the conservation of these species so that protection under the ESA is no longer needed.The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) of and implementing regulations generally prohibit taking or harming marine mammals, and impose restrictions on the import, export, and sale of marine mammals and mammal parts or products within the United States.
