Working with ASTOP has a positive impact on the culture and economy of the community. The economic benefits of turtle conservation in particular, are the key to maintaining a culture of conservation. Your visit ensures turtles and their eggs are protected and you contribute directly to improve the quality of life for families in the community while having the experience of a lifetime working with critically endangered marine turtles.
ASTOP needs your help. Sponsoring patrols will provide the financial resources to ensure a full-time volunteer coordinator will be working with the organization in 2017. Unfortunately, ASTOP does not have the means to setup or accept online payments at this time so funds are being raised with the assistance of Destination Conservation at no cost to ASTOP.
