12/15: New Loggerhead Red List Assessments Published
A new IUCN Red List Assessment of the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) is now available online.
This assessment was completed by the Marine Turtle Specialist Group of the IUCN Species Survival Commission, a global network of sea turtle experts. This is the second sea turtle species that has been assessed at both the global and subpopulation levels using IUCN Red List Criteria. Red List assessments at the subpopulation level are much more meaningful for conservation planning than those done solely at the global scale, especially for wide-ranging species like sea turtles.
