Recovery Strategy for the Leatherback Turtle in Atlantic Canada

7. Statement of when one or more Recovery Action Plans will be Completed

Recovery action plans are the documents that lay out how recovery strategies are to be implemented. The action plans take recommendations from the recovery strategy, either individually or collectively, and chart out who needs to be involved and to what extent in carrying out the proposed activities.

Following the approval of this recovery strategy under SARA and posting on the public registry, a recovery action plan for the Atlantic population of leatherback turtle will be developed within three years. In the interim, many of the strategies in this document can be acted on and therefore, recovery implementation will be an ongoing activity that can occur in the absence of any formal action plan.
