Last Galapagos Tortoise gone

In 1914 the last passenger pigeon died in captivity.

For the past half century, Harriet has been the last living Galapagos Tortoise. At age 176, she has finally died. She was the last example of that particular subspecies.

Four of the original 14 subspecies are now extinct.
