The scope of the efforts of ASUPMATOMA managed to reach a large number of communities. In 1999, three more stations were put into operation.
ESTACIÓN RANCHO NUEVO
Rancho Nuevo, which included patroling approximately 7.5 km, starting from Punta Gaspareño to Playa Los Cerritos.
ESTACIÓN CABO PULMO
Cabo Pulmo which includes 8.5km of beach to patrol starting at the mouth of a dry river bed to Punta Area for a total of 12 km.
ESTACIÓN LAGUNA HILLS
Patrolling an approximate 9 km., Starting from La Playa to Los Zacatitos.
In these stations, training was provided to local residents interested in protecting the environment, by initiating tourism and nest protection. The association maintained a direct relationship with the community, supervising the work and motivating families to join the project. The areas of these stations were monitored until 2001 due to the intervention of the Municipality of Los Cabos in those areas in that year.
In January 2000, ASUPMATOMA begain working in an area called Agua Blanca within the community of Todos Santos. This area was focused on leatherback turtle nest protection (Dermochelys coriacea), which is currently deemed a critically endangered species.
The conservation work was carried out for 9 years. As with the stations Rancho Nuevo, Cabo Pulmo and Laguna Hills, the local community was trained, who then managed to form another non-profit in 2009 as ¨Tortugueros Las Playitas¨ and thus take responsibility for conservation work.
The accumulation of all these experiences reflects ASUPMATOMA as a driver of environmental conservation, forging talented biologists dedicated to the conservation of nature, promoting community awareness and contributing to the recovery of sea turtle populations in the Eastern Pacific.
