“Fifteen tortoises from Española, including Diego, are going home after decades of breeding in captivity and saving their species from extinction,” announced in a Tweet on Monday.  “heir island receives them with open arms.”


When he arrived there were just two males and 12 females of his species alive on the island, but Diego helped to boost the population to over 2,000 said The Galapagos National Park services.
