Some good news for a change

It appears that the eradication of non native rats did the trick.  

Researcher James Gibbs, who was among the first to see the hatchlings, told The Dodo earlier this year, "I'm amazed that the tortoises gave us the opportunity to make up for our mistakes after so long."
"The incredible eradication of rats on this island, done by the park service and others, has created the opportunity for the tortoises to breed for the first time," he added.
