Our expedition around the Galapagos Islands aboard National Geographic Endeavour II is about to finish, and today we visited Santa Cruz Island, the most populated island. In the morning, we visited the main offices of the Charles Darwin Research Station and the tortoise breeding center of the Galapagos National Park. Later, buses took us to the highlands, where we visited local farms and learned about their products.

In the afternoon, we explored the western side of Santa Cruz and spent time with the giant tortoises in the wild.
