Several species of Aldabra Giant Land Tortoise were driven to extinction during the early world exploration years when sailors collected these animals as a food source. Today only two species remain; however, these two species have actually increased in number over the past 50 years. This is a great demonstration of how a decimated population may be able to begin recovery if the immediate threats are removed. (Saltwater crocodiles are another great example of this).

Australia Zoo endeavours to breed this species so that we may perpetuate the existence of this amazing animal and continue to promote their plight worldwide.
