turttle island / Isla de tortugas
Tengo que confesar que mi animal favorito son las tortugas, creo que son criaturas hermosas y muy viejas, su vida transcurre a un ritmo muy diferente al nuestro y debe ser increíble ver el mundo como ellas lo ven. Cuando vi este video me sorprendí mucho de cómo una persona puede amar tanto a esos animales y querer conservar un espacio para ellas. Cuando sea grande quiero tener una isla con muchas tortugas como ese señor 😀
I have to confess that my favorite animals are turtles, I think they are beautiful creatures and very old ones,it must be amazing to see the world as they see it. When I saw this video I was very surprised of how a person can love these animals so much and preserve a space for them. When I grow up I want to have an island with many turtles like this guy 😀

Watch out, little buddy. Not good for a shell-less tortoise to be lying out in the open..
Nate was inspired to create this map after reading an article in The New Yorker magazine about the efforts made by Eric Goode and the Turtle Conservancy to save the critically endangered ploughshare tortoise from extinction. Massive deforestation and rampant poaching on the island of Madagascar have put not only this species, but also many others at risk of extinction.
Madagascar is home to such an amazing array of exotic and beautiful wildlife. This map represents only a sample of just the reptiles that are at risk, not to mention all the mammals, birds, fish, insects and plant life that are also threatened.

I was born in miami but grew up in central florida. While visiting home a couple years ago I had this fantastic encounter with a beautiful Gopher tortoise. So in honor of my wishing this would happen again and again and again I’m posting these pics with some info. (P.S. since this is long and you might no read it all…most important info : when happening upon a natural habitat like this you shouldn’t, and I didn’t, pick up, touch, move, try and snuggle, offer it some of your sandwich, put your trash in its burrow or anything like that no matter how much you want to. Let em be man). and now…
