We are terribly saddened that the world lost a legend and one of the most important figures in conservation to date. Lonesome George passed away on June 24th, 2012 at 8 am in the Galapagos found by Fausto Llerena. He was not only an icon but also the inspiration behind everything that we do at Lonesome George & Co. We loved him dearly and his message will continue to drive us to create change so that situations like his don’t happen again. As Agents of Change, we must understand there is an urgency to recognize issues in our communities before they get to the point that they are irreversible. Lonesome George’s legacy will live on in all of us.
