Lonesome George

Lonesome George died on June 24th, 2012 due to natural causes. He was more than a mascot of the Galapagos. He was the last specie of the Pinta Island tortoise. While is exact age is unknown, he was believed to me more than 100 years old.

Before Lonesome George’s death, all attempts to mate him with closer female species of his kind failed.

We are very thankful to have been able to see him when we visited Santa Cruz Island a year and a half ago. Lonesome George remains a symbol of the urgent need to conserve nature.

My dear friend Marc is leaving the Bay Area today for the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. He will attend the International Space University‘s Space Studies Program to pursue his dream of working on a space program.

For the past year and a half, he launched a total of 4 weather balloons in “near space”, taking pictures and video during the process. I assisted him in the last 2 launched and made a video from it (HD):
