We are about to finish our expedition in the Galapagos Islands on board National Geographic Endeavour II and today we are visiting the heart of this unique archipelago. Santa Cruz Island is the most populated island and home of the healthiest population of giant tortoises. In the morning, we visited the Charles Darwin Research Station where different projects to conserve many of the species of the Galapagos happens. We also went to the Breeding Center of giant tortoises.

In the afternoon we visited the highlands, home of the giant tortoises. This location allows us to spend an amazing afternoon with these fascinating creatures in their natural habitat.
