Pinta Island


Also know like Abingdon. It got its name from one of the caravels of Columbus. Has an area of 60 km2 and a maximum altitude of 777 meters. Swallow-tailed gulls, marine iguanas, sparrow hawks, fur seals can be seen here.

Pinta Island

The most famous inhabitant was Lonesome George. Due to whaling ships and buccaneers, many tortoise populations were destroyed.

The introduction of goats on Pinta was probably the straw that broke the camel's back leaving one Pinta tortoise in this world.
