Lonesome George is a 5 foot long, 200 pound tortoise, between 60 and 200
years old. In 1971 he was discovered on the remote Galapagos island of Pinta,
from which tortoises had supposedly been extinct for years. He has been at
the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz island ever since, on the
off-chance that scientific ingenuity will conjure up a way of reproducing him
and resurrecting his species. Meanwhile, countless tourists and dozens of
baffled scientists have looked on as the celebrity reptile shows not a jot of
interest in the female company provided. Today, Lonesome George has come to
embody the mystery, complexity and fragility of the unique Galapagos
archipelago. His story echoes the challenges of conservation worldwide; it is a
story of Darwin, sexual dysfunction, adventure on the high seas, cloning, DNA
fingerprinting and eco-tourism.
