Jun 14, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
Today we visited the most populated island in the Galapagos Archipelago: Santa Cruz. The morning was spent at the giant tortoise-breeding center, where our guests learned about the most successful program of restoration of endangered populations ran by the Galapagos national park. It was a day with plenty of activities, including time in town, an optional visit to a local school, a visit to a farm, all this happening before lunch, which was served in the highlands. Then we boarded the buses and went to the giant tortoise natural reserve. We saw the gentle giant tortoises in their natural environment and walked through a lava tube. It was very important for our guests to learn about the conservation efforts in order to keep this paradise for the future generations. Galapagos is a perfect example of conservation in action!
