Tour group watches turtle sex


Note: Essentially this is the first thing we saw at our first substantive stop during Galápagos - 06. Rancho Primicias is private land that is being allowed to revert to something like its pristine state as part of the transition zone. This will never happen fully, as alien plants like guava and Spanish cedar are too well established. The environment is definitely attractive to Galápagos tortoises, however, and many were visible.
