Giant Galapagos Tortoises (167) More files...
Alcedo Volcano is home to the largest population of Galapagos Giant Tortoises remaining in the world today, a recent count estimates of over 12,000 individuals in the wild. 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. A report from February of 2021 deems that the conservation efforts to remove invasive goats and donkeys allowing local vegetation to thrive has been successful. Feral cats and rats are still present and threaten young tortoises and unhatched eggs.

With a local's eye Tui De Roy captures the slow but determined lives of these endangered tortoises. This photo package includes animals in their volcanic habitat, feeding, mating, interacting with symbiotic finches and wallowing in cooling mud holes. Significant images showing (since removed) feral goat populations are included as well.
