Giant Galapagos Tortoise
After spending some time visiting The Charles Darwin Research Station (CDRS) Located on Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island. I walked around to visit and see conservation in action. I just wanted to see the Giant Galapagos Tortoise. The feeling of seeing one with your own eyes in something I will never forgot, I filmed this short piece to give people a sense of what I felt.
The main aims of the CDRS is to conduct scientific research and environmental education for conservation. It was also here I saw Lonesome George, a symbol for conservation efforts in the Galapagos Islands and the world.
Below are more photos taken by me from my visit
Nothing prepares you when you first lay sight of these magnificent creatures. For me it was looking into a lost world. Seeing these animals were humbling and somewhat stirs your soul in what natural beauty the world has to offer. Truly breathtaking and inspiring
