Be part of something meaningful with outcome-orientated results

Darwin200 will harness the legacy of Charles Darwin by retracing his voyage onboard HMS Beagle. We will visit the same 50 ports and locations where Darwin made landfall, to train and empower the world’s elite young conservationists and engage with vast audiences to educate the global public about key conservation subjects. The project has 4 key objectives…


200 of the next generation’s elite “Darwin200 Leaders” from each of 200 countries and states around the world to help save the world over their coming careers.


200 million globally through the Darwin200 Leaders – each Darwin Leader has the goal of broadcasting their findings to one million people in their home countries and beyond


5 global research projects and use the ship as a floating laboratory to create the world’s most exciting classroom with free activities and resources for schools around the planet, to engage a further 200 million young people globally.


underprivileged lives for the better by giving them opportunity to be exposed to different skills and have a life-changing experience

Get Involved

We really need support to make this important project a reality from late 2021 and we have a variety of different options for you to get involved in over the course of the voyage. The project’s DNA will align well into any of your Environmental Sustainability Governance (ESG) initiatives and dovetails beautifully into many of the Sustainable Development Goals too.

We would welcome an opportunity to discuss your strategic ESG goals over the coming 3 years and tailor a package that will help you deliver on those, while getting incredible ROI on media coverage alone. Your organisation will help save the world by creating 200 of the next-gen leaders in conservation while educating millions of people of the beauty of our planet and the importance of its conservation – and actually solving these problems, rather than just talk about them.

    Why not get in touch to discover how your organisation can benefit from Darwin200?

    Proven concept with UK voyage

    Over the summer of 2020, the Darwin200 team undertook a test voyage, sailing the spectacular tall ship Pelican of London around the UK for seven weeks with 35 young, trainee sailors, some of whom were from underprivileged backgrounds, and 10 young scientists in partnership with the University of Plymouth. The UK Voyage was a complete success and we have not only proven the project concepts but perfected our understanding and methodology of executing the key objectives we will undertake during the global voyage.

    The Darwin200 UK Voyage has proven we can reach MILLIONS of people. The Darwin200 ship featured in 40 newspapers, magazines and TV news channels. Our social media channels exploded, with exposure to millions. Imagine scaling that up to our two-year global voyage, where will engage countless more people in conservation, science, adventure and discovery all over the world?!
