Staff at the Galapagos National Park in Ecuador say George, the only remaining member of his subspecies, was found dead by his long-term keeper.

“Working five to eight hours a day for a year…it’s what real dancers live through,” she tells People. “It was an amazing experience, but definitely a difficult one.”
