What is Lonesome George?

Lonesome George

Lonesome George is a giant tortoise that comes from the Pinta Island in Galapagos. Many years ago, there were thousands of tortoises on the island, but some people put some goats on the island and those goats ate all of the food that the tortoises were using for their food. Now, there are no more tortoises on that island. George is the last tortoise from that island that is still alive (And he’s about 80 years old).

George is destined to life as a bachelor, and when he goes, so does his race. Now we are more conscientious about the environment, but due to a careless past, another animal will become extinct.

You can now visit Lonely George at the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz island
