In an emotional ecosystem as complex as that of our planet, is life nothing more than survival of the fittest? Michael Hollinger based his probing work on the real-life giant tortoise named "Lonesome George", and the efforts to preserve his species that threatened the livelihood of the native fishermen on the Galàpagos Islands.

This recording also includes an interview with playwright Michael Hollinger as well as an interview with Carol Ann Bassett, the author of Galápagos at the Crossroads: Pirates, Biologists, Tourists, and Creationists Battle for Darwin's Cradle of Evolution.
