Symbolising Darwin’s HMS Beagle

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 project is encapsulated in a tall ship resembling HMS Beagle, but with a state-of-the-art laboratory and communications equipment.

The chosen DARWIN200 ship will sail around the world’s oceans with its crew onboard undertaking important studies of the world’s oceans and be met by the DARWIN200 Leaders at the same 50 ports Darwin made landfall, to enable them to conduct their activities, using the ship as a floating laboratory.
