    SUMMARY:
    - Socotra is so isolated that there are just a few roads for its 40,000 inhabitants. It’s also host to 800 rare species of flora and fauna, a third of which are found nowhere else on Earth.
    - Diego Garcia is located over 1,000 miles south of India, isolated in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is occupied by the US military, who leased it from the UK. The island is home to 2,000 military personnel, communication facilities, combat vessels, and 12,000-ft runways that can hold large aircraft.
    - The Eye, or El Ojo de la Tierra in Spanish, is a strange island that moves and rotates on its own axis. The Eye is fully circular, sits in a circle of water, and is located between the cities of Campana and Zarate in Argentina.
    - Isla Bermeja is shown on maps from the 18th and 19th centuries, but the island was not found in 1996 when Mexico conducted surveys. Nor was it located in an extensive study in 2009. Though it is clearly marked on maps, the island is currently nowhere to be found.
    - Okunoshima is a small island nestled in the Inland Sea of Japan. The island is small enough that it can be explored in under 2 hours. It’s grassy, and there’s a beach resort. But the best part of this island is the inhabitants: hundreds of rabbits roam the island.
    - This island has the highest concentration of venomous snakes in the world! For that reason, it is known as Snake Island. It hosts a population of over 2,000 lancehead vipers, one of the most dangerous species of snake.
    - Because of its macabre past, Poveglia is thought to be Italy’s most haunted island. This is a place for only the most hardcore ghost hunters and people who love a good horror story.
    - Island of Dolls is one of the creepiest places you can imagine! Though it was never meant to be a tourist attraction, hundreds of people visit the place each year.

    10 Most Mysterious Islands on Earth

    Islands are definitely some of the most intriguing places in the world. Some of them are famous tourist spots like Bali and the islands of Greece, while some others are remote and almost impossible to access, which makes them the perfect spot to escape from the crowds. However, some islands are so far from civilization to the point that they’ve become the scenario of mysterious and unexplainable events - or at least that’s what some people say. Today we’ll be looking at “10 of the Most Mysterious Islands on Earth” - we’ll be looking at what makes these places so unique and we’ll try to figure out what exactly is going on in these places. If you’re someone who likes dark mysteries and a bit of a thrill, then you’ll definitely want to know more about the island at the top of my list. I know this will make you want to get on a boat and get to it right away, even though it’s not so easy to find it.


    Bannerman Island

    When you think about mysterious islands, you might think of rare remote places around the globe. But the first island on this list is just a half-hour boat ride away from New York City. When you look at this place, the first thing you might notice is the presence of an incomplete castle, which was being built by Frank Bannerman VI, who made a lot of money by reselling military equipment that he got during government-led auctions at the end of the US Civil War. With so many possessions, he needed a safe place to store them, so his son advised him to get not a warehouse...but a whole island, which he ended up naming after himself. When Bannerman died in 1918, the construction of the castle stopped. Later, in 1950, the whole island became abandoned and well, no one really wants to stay here. People just come for short visits. According to Native American Tradition, this place is haunted by evil spirits. Perhaps they’re the ones who caused Bannerman’s misfortune? I guess we’ll never know.

    Isla Bermeja

    People have known about Isla Bermeja since the 1700s - that’s three hundred years ago! The existence of this place, off the coast of Mexico, was the key point to allow Mexico to extend its claim of offshore oil and put a stop to the United States from working in that area. Unfortunately, back in 2009, a group of researchers from a Mexican University went out to look for the island and they couldn’t find it. They used all sorts of devices to try to find it within the area indicated on the map, but their search was unsuccessful. Today, there are all sorts of conspiracy theories regarding the fate of this island. Some people claim it disappeared due to global warming or a terrible earthquake. But others like to think that the US bombed the place, which in their eyes, it makes sense, because if this island doesn’t exist anymore then Mexico can’t claim offshore oil in this part of the ocean. However, Mexicans are not giving up and they hope that one day they will find the island again.


    Vozrozhdeniya Island

    About a hundred years ago, the Soviet Union was looking for a place to become the scenario of one of the darkest laboratories of all time. After a thorough search around the nation, they finally found the perfect spot on Vozrozhdeniya Island - which is in the Aral Sea. It was on this island that they built a biological weapon lab in which they genetically modified things like smallpox, the plague, anthrax and other diseases to resist medical treatment. Part of the experiments included the caging of 300 monkeys that were exposed to the germs and were later monitored to see the progression of the diseases. The project had around 1,500 people working and living on this island. When they weren’t working, they could be seen at the social club, the stadium or any other interesting amenity that the government built just so they wouldn’t have to leave the island. Eventually, the Aral Sea dried up and the lab facilities turned into ruins. At this point, all the pathogens had been destroyed by the harsh conditions around it, except for anthrax, which can survive for a very long time. However a treaty signed in 1972 banned the use of biological weapons so they had to bury the anthrax spores. Authorities claim there are no traces of any disease now, but I guess we’ll never know for sure...unless we’re able to go there one day.

    Partridge Island

    I know a lot of you are probably tired of hearing words like “quarantine.” But that was exactly the main purpose of Partridge Island, which is off the coast of Saint John Harbour in Canada. This is the place where they quarantined Irish people who were moving to Canada in 1830

  • 12 Most Dangerous Islands You NEVER Want To Visit!

    13:54

    Top most dangerous islands you don’t want to visit! These are the craziest and scariest islands and most dangerous islands you never want to visit!


    #5. “Saba”-- Netherlands Caribbean
    If you are willing to brave the rocky but short twelve minute plane ride from St. Maarten to Saba, the smallest island in the Dutch Antilles you will be graced with a view like none other, a place that looks trapped in the ancient past. Upon arrival you will find a village nestled upon a volcano that is full of vibrant atmosphere with live music, family owned restaurants featuring fresh caught cuisine and plenty of outdoor activities like scuba-diving and hiking for nature lovers. But all this comes at a cost. You might say that the locals have become such experts at having a good time because at any moment it could all be destroyed. Tourists have been known to call it ‘The Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean’ but it could be more accurately described as ‘Hurricane Island’. Because of its location right in the Atlantic’s hurricane alley, the island has been noted for being hit by the most hurricanes of any island on Earth. Despite the constant attacks that mother nature brings down upon Saba its people still find a way to survive and rebuild time and time again.

    #4. “Rockall”-- Ireland
    The tiny 80 foot wide island known as Rockall which lies nearly three-hundred miles off of Scotland’s western shore has such an imposing presence it has made its way into Irish and Scottish legends as well as popular culture through music, books and television. People have long been entranced with its simple yet powerful structure with some ancient myths going as far to name it the location where the apocalypse will begin. The real life danger is in the fact that the island itself, is essentially a large granite rock sticking out of the ocean--the remnants of an extinct volcano. Because of its steep incline on all sides there is really only one place for a person to stand, the peak, which you can only get to if you are a skilled rock-climber. Even if you are it isn’t recommended that you try climbing the relatively short summit of 65 feet as the island is smack dab in the part of the ocean that boasts waves which reach upwards of 100 feet. Despite their being no natural value to the island other than its looks, Rockall was considered an extremely important strategic location by the United Kingdom who claimed the island in fear of it falling into the hands of the USSR and being used to house a missile silo. Britain’s claim to the island also has the historical distinction of being their last modern day territorial acquisition.

  • 10 Scientifically Impossible Places That Actually Exist

    11:00

    The Seven Wonders of the Natural World may have been named too quickly. Wonders like The Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls are certainly big, and anyone who sees them will surely be impressed—but sheer size isn’t enough to truly leave a person in awe.
    There are other places in this world, though, that are far stranger. Places that seem almost alien, as if they could only exist on a planet that evolved separately from our own. These are places that scientists have had to struggle just to understand how they ever could have been formed. Places that will truly make you wonder—not just because they’re beautiful, but because they seem to follow scientific laws that don’t exist anywhere else on earth. Here are 10 Scientifically Impossible Places That Actually Exist

    Ghost Island
    In 2013 researchers went looking for Sandy Island in the Coral Sea, east of Australia. Scientific databases showed the island to be about the size of Manhattan. Discovered in 1876 by a whaling ship, Sandy Island has been included on maps for more than a century, including, obviously, on Google Earth. When the Australian scientists arrived at the location, the only thing they found was open ocean. There was no other island that could have possibly been Sandy in sight. It just wasn’t there. So what happened to it? Did it sink beneath the waves? Was it just a figment of our imagination? It's possible that what the whaling ship had seen was a pumice raft, a floating raft of frothy light rock produced by volcanoes that can float around for years before breaking up. The island had gained so much fame it actually had an obituary published for it in April 2013. In it the researchers explained how the phantom island could have remained in geographical mind and maps due to human error. This undiscovery made headlines around the world and reminds us that despite modern technology, there are still mysteries to be solved in the ocean. Google and National Geographic quickly removed Sandy Island from their maps.
    Pentagram
    One thing's for sure, this is no crop circle or accident, this pentagram was placed there on purpose. Located in Kazakhstan, this is sure to lead any suspicious mind to the devil’s door. The 5-pointed star surrounded by a circle measures 1,200 feet (366m) in diameter. Located on the shore of a desolate lake, the pentagram shows up crystal clear on Google Maps if you wanted to look it up yourself. When the image first rose from the underworld to the internet, many were quick to link it, and Google, to devil worship. The pentagram is an ancient symbol used by many cultures and is not always satanic. It turns out that it is simply a park. Archaeologist Emma Usmanova has worked in the region for years and explained that its pathways were purposefully designed to create the shape of a star. The star is marked by roads lined with trees, making the shape stand out. The star was a popular symbol during the Soviet Union and many guessed that the site may have been an abandoned Soviet campground.
    Desert Spiral
    Google maps has frozen this double spiral in time. When people first saw the formation located in the Egyptian desert near the coast of the Red Sea, all kinds of theories arose. Crop circle, alien message, even a portal to an alternate universe. It’s too large and perfectly designed to have been created by any one person. Well, it was actually created by three women. Known as the Desert Breath, it is a super sized art installation created by DAST Arteam, a trio of Greek artists in March of 2007. The piece covers an area of about 10 hectares (25 acres). According to the artists it’s meant to celebrate the desert as a state of mind, a landscape for the mind.” The spiral is made up of cones made from sand and is subject to natural erosion. Over time it will disappear and become part of the desert plain once more.
    Syrian Holes
    Images of the current civil war in Syria is by no means new to the internet. While the destruction on a human level has been caught by photographers and news coverage, satellites have also recorded the damage to hundreds of archaeological sites. All six of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country, which are considered widely to be one of the oldest occupied areas on Earth have been damaged or destroyed. You can see the destruction for yourself if you were to look up Apamea via Google Earth. The location of the ancient Roman city is now a sea of pockmarked holes stretching over the entire area, left by looters since the start of the wr. Looters and treasure hunters have dug over 4000 holes looking for uncovered treasures to sell on the black market to finance the wr. These holes are about 2-3 meters across and in some cases are used to store weapons.
    Airplane Graveyard
    This might be one of the biggest, and coolest, graveyards you ever see. Located in Tucson, Arizona, the Davis Monthan Air Force Base is where U.S. military planes often find their final resting place. The cemetery stretches 2,600 acres and has been nicknamed “The Boneyard.” While the site is closed to the general public, modern day technology holds nothing sacred, not even the dead, and images of it are available for all to see on Google Earth (and other interactive maps). And it is something to see indeed.

  • The STRANGEST ISLAND in the PHILIPPINES

    20:18

    Danajon Islet, also known as Dawahon Islet, is an islet in the Philippines found at the easternmost end of the Danajon Bank. The islet is coterminous with Barangay Dawahon, which is under the jurisdiction of the municipality of Bato in the province of Leyte.

    There is an elementary school, a church, two basketball courts, one small road, and one government medical clinic. The high school children are sent to Hingotanan Island, 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) away by boat. There is a weekly ferry service from this islet to mainland town of Bato, Leyte, which is 24 kilometres (15 mi) away. Other nearby islands include Bilanglangan Island, Gaus Island, & the Caubyan Islets, which are 27 miles (43 km) to the east.

    The islet takes its name from the Danajon Bank, the Philippines only double barrier reef and one of only 6 documented double barrier reefs in the world. A very rare geological formation, it comprises two sets of large coral reefs that formed offshore on a submarine ridge due to a combination of favorable tidal currents and coral growth in the area.

    Danajon Bank is home to a vast array of commercially valuable reef fishes, shellfish, crustaceans, and invertebrates such as sea cucumbers and sea urchins. Its extensive seagrass beds are nursery and feeding grounds for various species of rabbitfish (siganids) and sea horses, while its mangroves are spawning habitats for crustaceans, shrimps, and various fishes.

  • 7 Islands No One Wants to Buy Even for $1

    10:01

    Do you ever you dream to own a private island? If you do, you'll probably find this information useful. Have you ever heard that there are whole islands out there that you can purchase for a fraction of the typical price? But the real kicker is that nobody wants to buy them! And there're reasons for that.

    Have you ever heard, for example, about Japan's Rabbit Island? They began to thrive and multiply on the island after a chemical weapons plant was closed. And these days, thousands of friendly bunnies will greet you if you decide to pay them a visit!

    SUMMARY:
    - For just 80,000 bucks, you can become the owner of not one but six islands situated on Brazil’s Sao Francisco River. But you’ll be subject to small annual taxes.
    - Although Little Rocky Island lies in the Atlantic Ocean, neighboring islands protect it from foul weather. There’s no property on the island, but you can build anything you like there!
    - Also known as Terrible Tilly, this island’s nickname speaks for itself. Well, it’s not technically an island in the traditional sense, it’s basically a rock with a single lighthouse on it off the coast of Oregon.
    - If you have an extra 40K, you can buy a 1-acre island with a view of picturesque Maine. There’s a little cabin on the island, and you can theoretically build some other property there too if you want.
    - You could become the owner of a historic private island on one condition: you have to restore the fort situated on it.
    - People typically associate private islands with some sort of tropical paradise. But Canada’s McGibbon Island is nothing like that. Perhaps that explains the super low price tag of 30 grand.
    - Welcome to a tiny island off the coast of Tasmania, Australia. This offer is open only for couples, and both partners should be equally eager to go to the island.
    - Ōkunoshima Island lies approximately 2 miles off the coast of Japan. From 1929 to 1945, there was a chemical weapons plant on the island that produced poisonous gas.
    - Dubbed Battleship Island because it looks like an old half-destroyed battleship, Hashima is located about 9 miles away from Nagasaki. From 1887 to 1974, there was a profitable coal mine on the island.
    - Located in Venice, Italy, Lazzaretto Nuovo is also open for tourists but home to nobody. In 1468, the island became a quarantine area for ships that approached the city. This move was meant to protect Venice from the plague.
    - Jaco Island belongs to the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste. This island looks like the picture of true paradise: lush green trees, crystal blue waters, and white sand. But his place is uninhabitable.

    A few years ago, a dog made waves as he rode a bike in the Philippines. Wearing a certified helmet specifically made for him, the then 4 year old dog was seen going around the streets of Manila, sitting on the front of his human companion’s motorcycle.

    8.) Barrel Man
    The Barrel Man is an easy to find and popular souvenir in the Philippines. The Barrel Man is so popular that it has even had its own exhibits in museums.

    7.) Sinarapan
    The Sinarapan is known as the world’s smallest fish that we eat and is only found in the Philippines. They are often found in Bato and Buhi Lakes.

    6.) World’s Largest Pair of Shoes
    This might not be the first thing you think of when you think of the Philippines! However, did you know that the world’s largest pair of shoes sits in the town of Marikina, Philippines.

    5.) Poong Nazareno
    Also known as the Black Nazarene, the Poong Nazareno is a life-sized, dark wooden sculpture of Jesus carrying the cross en route to his crucifixion.

    4.) Tamaraws
    Tamaraws, or the Mindoro dwarf buffalo, is a critically endangered animal native to the Philippines. It looks a little bit like a small water buffalo and is the largest mammal from the Philippines.

    3.) World’s Largest Banknote
    Created in 1998, the world's largest single banknote is the 100,000-peso note created by the government of the Philippines.

    2.) Hobbit House
    The Hobbit House was recently on CNNGo’s list of “world’s weirdest themed restaurants.”

    1.) Dancing Inmates
    Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), a maximum security prison in Cebu, Philippines made a claim to fame when their inmates got together to reenact the dance from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” around 2007.

    Okunoshima Island, Japan

    To start off our list, let’s mention one of the furriest islands in the world, Okunoshima Island, otherwise known as “Rabit Island”. As its nickname suggests, this island is filled with rabbits, and it actually has more rabbits than it has humans! The reason for the rabbits on this island is actually more sinister than you might think. During world war 2, this island was the site where Imperial Japan tested a lot of its chemical weapons, and also to test the effects of these chemical weapons on the rabbits. Humans weren’t really allowed on the island when the experimentation was over, and the leftover rabbits, well, bred like rabbits.

    Easter Island, Chile

    Easter Island is one of the most famous, yet mysterious Islands on earth. It’s located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and is technically a part of Chile, but what amazed almost everyone was the fact that a random island in the Pacific had these strange prehistoric statues littered all over the island. No one knows the story behind these statues, or why they were built, or even what they might represent. They may have been representations of kings who once ruled this region, but we might never know as most of this island’s native population was killed after European explorers brought various European diseases along with them. As the native population was lost, so was most of the island’s oral history.

  • 10 STRANGEST Islands on Earth

    8:00

    From the Island of Immortality, to the famed Easter Island, these are the 10 STRANGEST Islands on Earth !


    10.Gavdos

    Apart from its prominence as being the southernmost part of Europe the Island of Gavdos is shrouded in mystery…

    In the last 15 years the locals have been infiltrated by highly educated, former USSR scientists. At first they were welcomed with open arms and allowed to build different machines and weird structures all over the place, but now tensions rise as the Russian scientists claim to have figured out the key to immortality.

    One man was quoted as saying “There won’t be any new generations, We are the last generation. We won’t permit the birth of people who are mortals, they are not needed”

    Yiorgos Mustakis and Nikos Labot are making a documentary about the settlement and the extraordinary claims of the scientists. In an interview with VICE, Moustakis claims that the “Yes the scientists definitely have a theoretical framework that works”

    9.Isola la gaiola

    Located off the coast of Naples, Italy, Isola La Gaiola is actually within swimming distance from the shore for even the most inexperienced of us.

    The island is split in two and it was artificially disconnected from the shore sometime around 70 BC by a Roman politician.

    8.Deer Island

    Deer Island is part of the Thousand Islands, a cluster of around 1900 islands between the USA and Canada in New York State.

    Some of the islands have bridges between them, some have castles on them, but only one of them is owned by the notorious Skull And Bones Society.

    And that is what makes Deer Island so strange, because it is used as a retreat for the secret society, and anyone that has ever been part of it, has come to the island. With a member roster that includes both Bush Sr, and Jr, numerous intelligence agency members, and prominent business owners like the co-founder of Morgan Stanley and the founder of FedEx , it is easy to see how any place that connects them all is automatically entered into global conspiracies.

    7.North Sentinel Island

    This island is located in the Bay of Bengal, somewhere between India and Thailand. Its claim to fame is the fact that no westerner has ever gotten close to exploring any of it. The local inhabitants are not friendly, at all.

    Their total population numbers are estimated between 50 to 400 individuals, but that does not make them a weak community by any means. They are extremely adaptive, and survived the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and the tsunami it created.

    6.Hashima Island

    Hashima Island is located near Nagasaki is commonly referred to as the “battleship island” because of its rugged looks and the sea wall surrounding it.

    At one point, it was considered the most densely populated place in the world. With a massive population of 5,259, the population density was measured at 216,264 people/sq. Mile, or .77 people per square foot.

    5.Easter Island

    Located off the coast of Chile, Easter Island is arguably one of the most famous islands on earth. The beautiful and huge structures called Moai.

    The Moai, as many researchers believe, are deified ancestors. It is believed that these massive statues led to the deforestation of the island, and the subsequent internal wars and famine suggests that at one point, the locals practiced cannibalism !

    4.Galapagos Islands

    A land that seems to have been forgotten by time, the Galapagos Islands are located near the coast of Ecuador, and their claim to fame is the crazy amount of endemic species !

    The islands are also home to these mini godzilla’s, also known as marine iguanas. They are the ONLY marine lizards in the world ! How neat is that?

    3. Islands ruled by animals

    There is so many islands that are inhabited by animals that it would be a shame not to include them on this list.

    Like Macquarie Island, which sees an army of 4 million penguins annually.
    Or Tashirojima, home to more cats than humans.
    And of course, who can forget snake island off the coast of Brazil?


    2. Socotra

    Officially a part of Yemen, Socotra consists of 4 islands, with some of the most ALIEN landscapes on Earth.

    30% of the plant life on the island can be found nowhere else on earth, and it is one of the most isolated landforms of continental origin, meaning it was once part of a supercontinent and not created from a volcanic explosion.

    When comparing the current ecosystem of the island to reports from the 1500s or 1700’s it is sad to see that there are many species of animals and plants that have completely disappeared. With some explorers mentioning seeing crocodiles and water buffaloes !

    1.Tristan da Cunha

    What could possibly be more interesting than Socotra ?

    How about the official, most ISOLATED place on earth?

    Tristan da Cunha are a group of remote islands in the south Atlantic Ocean. The islands are 1,500 miles(2,400km) away from the nearest continental coast and 1,200miles(2,000km)

  • STRANGEST Creatures of the Galapagos Islands !

    10:37

    From weird pink iguanas and painted insects; to mysterious new species; here are STRANGEST Creatures of the Galapagos Islands !


    Galapagos Penguin
    Native to the islands, this is the only penguin known to exist north of the equator in the wild. It’s one of the world’s smallest species of penguin at about 19 inches long and weighing some 5.5 pounds. And due to its low population it’s also considered one of the rarest penguin species. Including other factors, the birds have many predators, including introduced species like dogs and rats. When they’re in the water, sharks and sea lions target the penguins.

    Marine Iguanas
    Charles Darwin was not impressed with their looks and called them ‘imps of darkness’. They’re better known as marine iguanas that are found only on the Galapagos Islands … and are the only sea-going lizard currently known. Some of their marine adaptations include the ability to dive for more than 60 feet, and stay submerged for a hour. Marine Iguanas normally subsist on seaweed. But when food gets low, experts say they can somehow shorten their own bones to make them smaller, and more energy efficient. Their dark coloration serves a couple of purposes. While it allows them to blend in with their environment, it also helps them quickly absorb heat after swimming in the cold waters.

    Blue Footed Booby
    It’s pretty easy to guess where this marine bird gets its name. While those feet look strange, they do serve a vital purpose when it comes to perpetuating the species. Males will strut around females, lifting their feet up and down in an unusual mating ritual. The guys with the brightest feet indicate greater fertility, and will usually win the ladies. Because the color fades with age, females mate with the younger males. The blue coloration is a result of a pigment the birds absorb from their diet of fresh fish. Unlike some of the critters on the list, these birds are not found only in the Galapagos … but experts say that about half of their global population breeds there.

    Galapagos Pink Land Iguanas
    There’s only one place in the world … and only one location in the Galapagos where you can see these uniquely colored lizards. In fact, the pinkish hue almost makes you wonder if this isn’t yet another one of those digitally created beasts … either that, or the reptile seems to have had its dark skin scraped off, leaving it pink and raw. But that is their natural coloration. If you want to see one in the pink flesh, they’re found in the Volcan Wolf region of the Galapagos, on Isabela Island. While this iguana is a species unto itself, experts say only around 100 of them known to exist.

    And before getting to the number one critter, here’s an honorable mention. We found an interesting story about the Great Frigatebird which nests in the Galapagos. It’s not unlike the Magnificent Frigatebird which we mentioned earlier. In this species, the males also have a red sac at the throat which is inflated to attract a mate. We’re including it because this particular animal was involved with an unusual experiment to see if birds could actually sleep while flying. And while that has been suspected for some time, scientists now have proof of the phenomenon. The brainwaves of Great Frigatebirds were monitored for 10 days. Researchers found that the birds could in fact be half asleep, but kept one eye open (literally) to watch out for potential threats. The stats revealed that the bird subjects would sleep for just over 40 minutes while they flew on autopilot. But when on land, they will sleep for up to 12 hours a day. Experts say it’s an example of ‘unihemispheric sleep’ -- where one half of the brain shuts down while the other half remains alert.

    Galapagos Tortoises
    The world’s largest species of tortoise can weigh more than 900 pounds. That enormous size has helped make them so iconic, that the Galapagos Islands were actually named after these reptiles (not the other way around). They’re among the longest lived invertebrates, with life spans documented up to around 170 years. Their population underwent a great decline from when they were first found in the 16th century. At that time their population numbered around 250,000 individuals. By the 1970s, only 3,000 existed. Today, there’s around 25,000, but the species is classified as vulnerable. Besides the Galapagos, Giant Tortoises only exist on the archipelago of Aldabra in the Indian Ocean.
