A native of the Galapagos Islands and the last of his species, the Pinta Island tortoise known as Lonesome George became an international symbol of ever-increasing extinctions. When he died of natural causes in 2012, more than 40 years after being discovered on Pinta Island, the Museum worked with the Galapagos National Park Service, State University of New York College of Environmental Services and Forestry, the Galapagos Conservancy, and a team of master taxidermists to preserve Lonesome George for future generations. Before the tortoise is returned to Ecuador, he will be on exhibit here at the Museum for a limited time. Lonesome George is presented in collaboration with the Galapagos National Park Directorate and Galapagos Conservancy
