+$Watch this two minute video taken in the Galápagos by traveler and WWF employee Heather Finn. Find out what happens when two giant tortoises meet on a narrow path - who will win this show of dominance?

+$“That behavior would be a dominance show – about as aggressive as tortoises get!

+$The raising of the head is how they measure each other and sometimes you can get guttural sounds as well… well, actually more like a heavy breathing. That is part of the show. The one that got the taller neck is the one that probably won….” -+$WWF Galápagos field team

巨龟是来自加拉帕戈斯群岛的标志性物种,仅在这些岛屿上发现。它们长达4英尺,重达700磅,是世界上最大的活龟。像巨龟,海鬣蜥和加拉帕戈斯企鹅这样的物种继续令科学家惊叹不已,让游客高兴。然而,这种全球性的兴趣相当于人类的巨大影响,并使独特的生态系统面临风险。

+$WWF spearheaded conservation efforts in the Galápagos, including funding of the construction of the Charles Darwin Research Station. For more than 50 years, we have played an integral role in protecting nature in the Galápagos. We want to ensure tourism is done sustainably and can be used as a tool for conservation

+$Travel with WWF to the Galápagos.
