The National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Services) completed a review of the status of the hawksbill sea turtle. The review is required every 5 years for species listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. – via Herp Digest

The hawksbill sea turtle was listed in 1970 as endangered with extinction throughout all of its range.  The previous review of the hawksbill’s status was completed in 2007. 

Based on the best available information, the Services conclude the hawksbill sea turtle should not be reclassified to threatened or delisted.  The review can be found on each agency website at:
