IS it extinct or is there a chance of finding it? If there is a chance who wants to go on an expedition to find it?

A 2012 study found hybrid individuals on Isabela island, the authors suggest that still living C. elephantopus (AKA Pinta Island Tortoises) may therefore exist.

In the years since though no discovery has been made, though a quick google didn't show up any evidence of a new expedition.
