ASTOP – Association Save the Turtles of Parismina is a grass roots, not-for profit association established in 2001. A small group of local people were concerned about the future of sea turtles that were nesting on their beach as they noticed environmental problems and an increase in sea turtle poaching activities. They decided to take action and ASTOP was born in partnership with the Costa Rican coast guard.
