    SOLAR STORMS MIGHT BE CAUSING GRAY WHALES TO GET LOST The famed Galapagos Conservancyas giant tortoise named Diego fathered 40 percent of all tortoises on Espanola Island in Galapagos Conservancyas. ( San Diego Zoo) The 175-pound Diego is a Chelonoidis hoodensis, a species only found in the wild on the island ofEspanola, according to AFP. He reportedly fathered an estimated 800 offspring as of 2016. He was brought to the U.S. between 1928 and 1933 and placed in a breeding center on the Galapagos Conservancyas island of Santa Cruz, after his species was determined to be critically endangered in the 1960s, according to San Diego Zoo. Based on the results of the last censusconducted at the end of 2019and all the data available since 1960 both of the island and its tortoise population... the conclusion was that the island has sufficient conditions to maintain the tortoise population, which will continue to grow normally even without any new repatriation of juveniles.
