In his last years, he was known as the rarest creature in the world. George served as a potent symbol for conservation efforts in the Galápagos and internationally.
since you posted this 6 more species have died.
we currently lose an estimate of 3 species per hour.
we've been fighting to save the dolphins and the whales for years but in this whole time tens of thousands of other species have gone extinct.
