    Built in 2002, Cerro Colorado Galapaguera Tortoise Reserve is located in a dry forest and was constructed to preserve the San Cristobal subspecies of Galapagos Tortoise (Geochelone chathensis). The San Cristobal tortoises are seriously threatened by introduced animals (wild goats, rats and cats), which the park has been working to eradicate. The tortoise preserve and captive breeding program was developed to insure the continuation of the subspecies.
