Sailing in the Wake of Darwin
The Oosterschelde, a traditional three-masted Dutch schooner, set sail from Plymouth (England) mid-August 2023, to retrace the route taken by the Beagle almost two centuries previously.
Two hundred young naturalists from 200 countries will spend time on board studying an animal or plant that Charles Darwin studied in the port they visit, in particular studying significant changes over the last 2 centuries. The Oosterschelde is to be used as a floating laboratory and media platform and it is hoped new ideas and strategies will be developed to improve conservation efforts and better-protect the selected animals and plants.
