Today we are back to civilization as we visited the biggest human settlement of the archipelago, Puerto Ayora. This was a GIANT day, we observed giant tortoises by the dozens and learned about the joint efforts of the Charles Darwin Foundation and The National Park Administration as we explored the Giant Tortoise Rearing Center.

We also visited the farm which provides the leafy greens for our expeditions, and they taught us about the benefits of hydroponic technology. Later, we visited the migration route of the giant tortoises to see them once again, but this time in their natural habitat in the wilderness. What a humongous day we had.
