And US officials, as per conservationists, approved to look for some suitable nesting and migratory habitat within two months.

Jaclyn Lopez, a Florida-based attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, was quoted as saying, "Protecting sea turtle nesting habitat will not only help sea turtles but everyone who enjoys clean and healthy beaches along the Gulf Coast".
