The tortoises were evacuated in such extraordinary numbers that they were quickly getting to be wiped out by the twentieth century. 

On account of the endeavors of naturalists and nature darlings, the vast majority of the tortoise subspecies have been spared. 

The most straightforward spot for guests to see mammoth tortoises in the wild today is on Santa Cruz, in the profound grasses and sloppy lakes of the good countries, in the El Chato Reserve or on the encompassing private farms.
