Galapagos Islands

With a total area of 1415 m2, the purpose of this center is to increase the population of giant tortoises, more specifically the Chelonoidis chatamensis, an endemic species. They are bred in conditions similar to their natural environment. By walking on the center's trails, you can admire here tortoises in different stages of growth, from hatchlings to 120 days old. At this point, they are taken back to their habitat, when they'll be able to survive on their own.
