Local involvement in the conservation efforts for the species have also increased in the past few years. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has classified the hawksbill turtle as endangered since 1970. The U.S. government has several recovery plans in place for protecting its populations of "E. imbricata".cite web | authorlink = | author = | title = Species Profile: Hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) | work =USFWS Threatened and Endangered Species System (TESS) | publisher =United States Fish and Wildlife Service | date = 1970-06-02 | url =http://ecos.fws.gov/speciesProfile/SpeciesReport.do?spcode=C00E | accessdate = 2007-02-05 ]
