The next morning we woke up at 5:00 to go and visit the giant tortoises at the Darwin Centre.
Among them we saw the famous turtle named Lonesome George, the last known individual of the Pinta Island giant tortoises.
We also visited the Charles Darwin Research Station where giant tortoises are raised from birth until they are five-year-old, these are the years in which their chance of survival is very low; then the tortoises are brought back in the same place where they were born.
We left Galapagos with regret. We spent unforgettable days!
Undoubtedly, the Galapagos Islands are a real PARADISE ON EARTH!
