I have to share this good news:
“During a recent population survey on Pinzón Island, a team led by Dr. James Gibbs, Professor of Vertebrate Conservation Biology and Associate Chair of the Department of Environmental and Forest Biology at the State University of New York, discovered ten newly hatched saddleback tortoises, the first Galapagos giant tortoises to be reared in the wild in over a century.” http://geographical.co.uk/nature/wildlife/item/701-historic-birth-for-galapagos-tortoises
When I visited the Galapagos, eliminating introduced species (which were destroying the native life) seemed an overwhelming task. Rats, cats, goats, pigs… But tortoises live a long time and that gave humans a chance to repair the damage. Hurray.
