We are about to end our expedition in the Galapagos Islands aboard National Geographic Endeavour II. Today we visited the center island, Santa Cruz. Here we visited the Charles Darwin Research Center, the famous breeding center for giant tortoises. Later in the morning, we visited the highlands of this island. We saw how people survived when they started settling here. In the afternoon, we went to the western side of the island to see the giant tortoises in their natural habitat
