This is sad. He is the only guy survived of his species and has no partner. Common god, don’t do injustice to him. Poor chap, have no one to share his life with.
The giant tortoise is a reminder for vigilance and conservation of the species.
The species was considered extinct until 1971, when a lone example was located by rangers. Since then, the Charles Darwin Research Station has been searching for a female tortoise, even posting a reward of $10,000 to those that find one.
