Art Contests Accepted Artists
Belmont, Massachusetts USA
One of my earliest memories is of my father sitting in an old tartan armchair by my bed and reading Darwin’s Voyage of the Beagle and the exploration of the Galapagos Islands. Galapagos Tortoises are old, magnificent animals, well-adapted to their habitat. Despite their glacial longevity and distant ecological niche, these tortoises are now endangered due to human activity and the introduction of invasive rat species to the island. Thanks to the prolonged efforts of naturalists, for the first time in over a century baby galapagos tortoises have recently birthed on the island. I dedicate this piece to the future of these old men of the sea.
