Why work with ASTOP?


ASTOP is unique because the project focuses on community level solutions and not just science and turtles. The objective of the project is to generate economic opportunities for local residents to provide a sustainable and legal income.


The funds you pay to patrol the beach pay the patrol guides and hatchery guards. When you stay in  a homestay you provide income for a local family that will provide you with meals and a comfortable place to stay during your visit.
