Seychelles is home to the world’s heaviest land tortoise living in the wild. This is Esmeralda (304 kg) on Bird Island. Esmeralda is the world's oldest living giant tortoise. Aldabra, one of the main outer atoll, has the largest population of Giant Tortoises in the world.

Giant tortoises were common on all islands in the western Indian Ocean until the islands were colonised. The species has been thought to be extinct
due to overexploitation by settlers. By 1840 the only surviving giant tortoises in the wild were those on the faraway Aldabra atoll (Seychelles) and the unrelated Galapagos giant tortoises in the Pacific. These species are now the subject of conservation programmes being carried out by the Nature Protection Trust of Seychelles and in some other places in the Indian Ocean.
