Giant Galapagos Tortoises (66) More files...
Alcedo Volcano is home to the largest population of Galapagos giant tortoises remaining in the world today, numbering between four and five thousand. Whereas several of the fourteen distinct island races teeter near the brink of extinction, and others have already gone altogether, the Alcedo tortoises have until recently escaped the waves of destruction which mankind has wrought upon Galapagos. With a local's eye Tui De Roy captures the slow but determined lives of these endangered tortoises.
