The HMS Beagle Project

by The HMS Beagle Project

Thanks to Jeremy Swanson for the link.

In 2009, the bicentenary of Charles Darwin's birth we will build a sailing replica of HMS Beagle. An icon of scientific progress, she will circumnavigate the globe in Darwin's wake, crewed by aspiring scientists and researchers. They will carry out original research both at sea and on land, updating Darwin's observations, breaking new scientific ground and relating the adventure of science to enthuse a new generation of young students. If you support our vision, contact us, donate to the build fund, request a sponsorship pack, or visit the Beagle Project Shop USA or UK /Europe, buy the t-shirt and show 'em you want a Beagle sailing the world in 2009.
