Program Description

The Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Program of NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office (GARFO), Protected Resources Division (PRD), carries out the mandates of the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and is charged with protecting the whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea turtles that occur within the Greater Atlantic Region (GAR) (Maine through Virginia). This program includes marine mammal health and stranding response; large whale disentanglement; and sea turtle stranding and disentanglement. To implement this program NMFS established several networks consisting of volunteer organizations that it authorizes to respond to stranded marine mammals and sea turtles and entangled large whales and sea turtles. NMFS seeks the submission of proposals addressing the equipment and resource needs of partners from the GAR Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Stranding and Disentanglement Network and the Atlantic Large Whale Disentanglement Network in the Greater Atlantic Region. This document describes how applicants submit and how NMFS will evaluate and recommend proposals for funding in Fiscal Year 2014.
