Turtle News

As a former biologist, I am excited about the news I heard this morning of a species of turtles that is about be extinct no longer.  The BBC World news reported that the Floreana species of turtle, extinct since the 1800’s, may soon be restored.  I do love turtles, and I do hope this effort by the Galapagos Conservancy is successful.

This turtle cooperated when I wanted to take a picture on a recent trip to West Texas.
