The Galapagos Giant Tortoise is perhaps the most famous inhabitant of the archipelago, but their very survival is under threat from ecological damage. Pests such as wild cats and goats and the impacts of human activity have seen their numbers reduced dramatically, so the Jacinto Gordillo Breeding Center of Giant Tortoises is setting about to save them, and doing it very well. Visitors can enjoy a loop trail and guided tour that will show these gentle creatures in their natural habitat as well as a nursery where baby tortoises are hatched and cared for until they are old enough to be released. Make sure you’re camera is charged; there’s plenty of close encounters!
