Going Green: Restoring Endangered Tortoises

Description

Researchers believe they've found tortoises on Isabela Island in the Galapagos chain that have gone extinct on Pinta and Floreana Islands. They have captured several of the tortoises and will breed them in hopes of restoring the populations on their original island homes.
