A Tortoise and Conservation

The photograph is of a Galapagos tortoise that lives today because of conservation efforts that began in the 1950's with Ecuador,IUCN and UNESCO, and continues today with tourism dollars earmarked for conservation programs and the Galapagos National Park. My own involvement as a volunteer helped continue the mission by helping to establish the Charles Darwin Exhibition Hall in 2016.
