Giant Tortoises of the Galapagos Islands

If the Galapagos Islands had a mascot, it would undoubtedly be its famed giant tortoises. Living over 150 years, the sizes and shapes of the tortoises vary from island to island. Spend a day on Santa Cruz among these gentle giants - a humbling chance to stand steps away from tortoises in the wild and learn about efforts to conserve the species while at the Charles Darwin Research Station.
