The U.S. Navy is inviting public comment on a proposal to increase the use of sonobuoys in Pacific Northwest waters used for naval training. It is expected the buoys will have impacts on local species, and the Navy has specifically stated this “is likely to adversely affect” endangered leatherback turtles. The comment period closes February 2.
