Hart, Margaret M. Lamont, Autumn R. Sartain and Ikuko Fujisaki, in their peer-reviewed journal article “Migration, Foraging, and Residency Patterns for Northern Gulf Loggerheads: Implications of Local Threats and International Movements” (2014), suggest that population recovery in the Northern Gulf of Mexico (NGoM) loggerhead subpopulation is dependent upon managing threats to important foraging habitats as something that needs to be an international collaboration.Focusing on three study sites, 1 in Alabama (Gulf Shores) and 2 in Florida (St. Joseph Peninsula and Eglin Air Force Base), the authors used a switching state-space model (SSM) and satellite telemetry to distinguish certain foraging areas used by 59 tagged NGoM loggerheads during 2010–2013 by (1) tagging the turtles with satellite transmitters to monitor the movements via the Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool and (2) SSM accounted for location errors and the animal’s behavior which determined the beginning and end date of migration and foraging periods for each specimen and (3) mapped the overlap between foraging habitats and commercial shrimp, the extent of oiling from the DWH oil spill and the locations of active oil and gas platforms for conservation guidance. The author’s purpose is to demonstrate the importance of habitats within the Gulf of Mexico for the nesting loggerhead subpopulation, the importance of female survival rates for population recovery and anthropogenic activities that threaten the recovery of the NGoM subpopulation. By writing this article the authors intend to reach anyone studying or interested in conservation or habitat degradation. They could also be reaching out to anyone in management, lawmakers, nature conservancies and even those involved in the oil industry about the consequences of anthropogenic threats to this subpopulation.
