Lonesome George has died. He was the last Pinta Island Giant Tortoise. The species was hunted to extinction, as well as suffering the depredations of invasive, introduced species such as rats and goats, and habitat destruction.
Hopefully, his DNA was extracted before embalming, so that perhaps cloning can occur with a close relative subspecies.
A hybrid male had been recently discovered, so with Lonesome George's DNA, and cross breeding the hybrid to the other closely related subspecies, and then line breeding and back breeding, could bring back the Pinta Island Giant Tortoise.
It would be, of course, expensive and a lengthy process.
Rest in peace, Lonesome George. You are a monument to man's carelessness, stupidity, and destructiveness.
