Wine country is also salmon country. Tour the only NOAA Habitat Focus Area in California and learn what people are doing to balance their competing needs for water and to bring back endangered salmon and threatened trout. This story map of the Russian River guides you through a 5-year plan to rebuild salmon and trout populations. Here in northern California, experts in weather forecasting, habitat restoration, and ocean management are working in tandem to improve forecasts and increase resiliency to flooding and drought. Browse the story map for the videos of weather extremes and steelhead trout. Learn how partners, representing wine grape agriculture and water conservation, are connecting with managers of fish and wildlife to address California’s many freshwater issues. This work demonstrates on-the-ground applications of the NOAA model for saving habitat and supporting communities. Check out the story map here: Learn more about the Russian River Habitat Focus Area:

Week A close up of 'Rocket Girl,' a hawksbill sea turtle in the nearshore waters of Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. She was fitted with a GPS-linked satellite tag in October 2015 which allows and our research partners to track her movements. The data gathered with the tag helps scientists understand more about how this small population of endangered hawksbill turtles use habitat and where they go during daytime foraging dives. This summer, the research team will recapture Rocket Girl and remove her tag. Check out more snapshots of sea turtle science here - Link in bio.

Check out this close up of a Pacific leatherback. Critically low populations of Pacific leatherback sea turtles have put them in the spotlight for increased aid and attention. These sea turtles suffer from many threats such as getting caught in fishing nets, over-harvesting of eggs and destruction of nests by animals. Find out what NOAA is doing and what you can do to help recover these endangered populations: Photo Credit: Scott Benson/NOAA Fisheries.

turtleweek Sea turtle biologists from NOAA and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have been monitoring loggerhead sea turtles in Florida Bay, FL for over 25 years. Connectivity and migration pathways between the Florida Bay foraging grounds and east and west coast Florida nesting beaches have been established through tagging, including satellite tagging of adult female loggerhead turtles.

An endangered Pacific leatherback turtle with a video camera attached to its carapace by a suction cup approaches its prey, a brown sea nettle, off the coast of San Francisco, California in September 2016. These huge turtles migrate across the Pacific Ocean from western Pacific nesting beaches in Indonesia and Solomon Islands to forage on sea nettles in nearshore waters of California.

Celebrate Sea Turtle Week with NOAA Fisheries! Sea Turtle Week is an opportunity to share with our friends, families, colleagues and our larger communities why it is important to conserve and recover sea turtles, as well as what we each can do to help preserve these magnificent marine reptiles. Learn how we work with various partners to improve the conservation and recovery of threatened and endangered sea turtles: Photo: Green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) near Oahu, Hawaii.

Love to fish? It's ! Saltwater recreational fishing supports nearly 440,000 jobs and contributes to roughly $63 billion in sales impacts and $36 billion in gross domestic product each year. It's also a beloved pastime for many fishermen and their families and friends. Read our latest leadership message from National Recreational Fisheries Policy Advisor Russell Dunn.

From May 12 to June 4, 2017, the NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette is conducting a research expedition in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) to support research and recovery efforts for the endangered Hawaiian monk seal. Every year, biologists in NOAA's Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program monitor the status of monk seals at remote locations in the NWHI, highlighting threats and seeking new ways to help save individuals in an effort to recover the species.
