Lonesome George's Lesson in Biodiversity

What We Can Learn From This Historic Extinction Event
Last week the world reeled from the loss of the last living giant Galapagos Tortoise of Pinta Island, Chelonoidis nigra, aptly named Lonesome George.  George became a symbol of preservation around the world and especially for the ecologically unique string of pacific islands since the 1970’s.  His presence on Pinta Island surprised biologists, who had thought his sub-species had already entered extinction.  But alas, George was the last.George lived out the remainder of his life at the Galapagos National Park in Ecuador.  His caretaker, Fausto Llerena, found his lifeless body in his enclosure last week.  The park’s director Edwin Nuala simply said, “His life cycle came to an end.”  An autopsy revealed that George died of old age.  He was about 100-years-old.
