    Very sad news, but fear not, not all hope is lost!

    His death marks the end of the purebred Pinta Island tortoise, but there is hope that they will survive in some form: at least one first-generation descendant of the subspecies has been found at the Wolf volcano on neighboring Isabela Island.

    Did they save the genetic code of the animal? By saving the genetic code they could preserve an integral part of that race.
