This book is divided into three major sections. The first discusses provisions of the MMPA and the ESA that form the foundation for most marine mammal protection programs. The second profiles protection programs for all 22 listed taxa. Each profile summarizes information on the taxon’s status, major threats, management framework, critical habitat, recovery planning, major management actions, and staffing and funding levels. The third summarizes overall trends in protection programs for the listed species and populations, based on those profiles. Appendices include tables and charts with estimates of expenditures for related conservation programs, additional details regarding key provisions of the MMPA and the ESA, and information on the status of the various taxa.
