The HMS Beagle Project will use hands-on learning to engage young people with science, while delivering original biodiversity and climate change research. Find out more about our learning and science programmes around the world.
We’ve got an ambitious idea but we can’t do it alone. You can help engage young people around the globe in the adventure of scientific discovery — and deliver cutting-edge climate research — by making a donation or becoming a sponsor.
We are working to use a sailing ship similar to the one that carried Charles Darwin on ‘the most important event’ of his life. Built of larch and oak, the modern Beagle will use GPS navigation, satellite communications and modern safety equipment.
The HMS Beagle Project coordinated a celebration of the scientist’s life and work in Paraty, Brazil. Marine scientists, representatives from NASA and local schoolchildren gathered to celebrate Charles Darwin's bicentenary and promote the modern legacies of his voyage aboard HMS Beagle. Catch up with the event via the media coverage and the report.
The HMS Beagle Project and the Darwin Centre commisioned the Earl of Pembroke for the day and took a group of young people out to sea to recreate some of Darwin's experiences and learn about the importance of the ocean and the life within it. Catch up with the event via the TV and newspaper coverage.
