  • We just did an eco-cruise to the Galapagos Islands back in October, so we were super excited to hear that the Floreana Tortoises may be making a comeback. It was amazing to learn the history of the Galapagos Tortoise species and hear how they’d almost been wiped out, and learn how the Charles Darwin Research Station is working to ensure the survival of the species. It’s a great lesson in environmental stewardship and conservation the rest of the world should learn from.
