Lonesome George- Part Two

On a recent cruise around the Galapagos Islands I was lucky to have as guests a couple from Germany who took professional videos throughout the Islands. They were taking the videos for their company AquaSurround, which specializes in creating music and reflective environments that connect to sophisticated waterbed systems. These videos have been set to music and can be seen and heard on Youtube. They are some of the most beautiful and thoughtful Galapagos videos you will ever see and well worth watching.
 Among their truly special videos are these two tributes to Lonesome George:






Thank you Alex for sharing this footage with us.
