Galapagos tortoises are some of the longest living animals in the world, according to the zoo. The population suffered rapid decline towards extinction, down as low as 3,000 in the 1970s, but conservation efforts have helped the population rise to around 20,000 Galapagos tortoises in the wild, the zoo said.
