RIP George

A sad day today. Poor ol' Lonesome George passed away. Found dead in his enclosure at the Charles Darwin Research Station near Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos. He was the last of his kind and was estimated to be over 100 years old. At least we got to see him in 2010.

Rest in peace 'Solitario Jorge'

Thanks Polina for the following images taken in 2010 when we visited the research centre.
