The adventure of science, discovery and exploration are Darwin200’s central themes, inspired through following Charles Darwin’s voyage and the research and outreach activities that will engage hundreds of millions of people around the world. The Darwin200 voyage will commence in 2021 and will leave from Plymouth, where Charles Darwin set sail on HMS Beagle, and will return back to Falmouth, where Darwin stepped ashore after his epic five year journey.
“I am very supportive of this incredible project. Using Charles Darwin’s voyage on HMS Beagle as a framework to highlight environmental change as well as the beauty of nature is a timely and noble ambition.”
