The CollectA Pinta Island Tortoise pays homage to the iconic individual known as "Lonesome George," a symbol of conservation efforts and the plight of endangered species. Lonesome George was the last known surviving member of the Pinta Island tortoise species (Chelonoidis abingdonii), native to the Galápagos Islands.

Pinta Island tortoises were once abundant throughout their native range but faced severe population decline due to human exploitation, habitat destruction, and introduced predators. Lonesome George became a symbol of conservation efforts when he was discovered on Pinta Island in 1971 as the last remaining individual of his species.

Efforts were made to find a mate for Lonesome George to prevent the extinction of the Pinta Island tortoise lineage, but unfortunately, none were successful. Despite conservation attempts, Lonesome George passed away in 2012, marking the end of his species and highlighting the urgent need for conservation action to protect endangered wildlife.
