Transporting Giant tortoises

In 1897 Walter Rothschild despatched explorer Charles Harris to the Galapagos islands to collect a large number of giant tortoises, aiming in part to protect them from potential extinction from hunting. Eventually 144 giant tortoises from Galapagos and Aldabra in the Seychelles ended up at Rothschild home grounds of Tring Park. The method of transporting the tortoises across the islands to the boats is shown here. Date: 1897
