LONDON, Aug 15 (Reuters) – Almost two centuries after Charles Darwin’s voyage around the world, environmentalists plan to follow in his footsteps by undertaking a two-year journey across four continents to study endemic wildlife and boost conservation.
The group will set sail on board a 105-year-old schooner on Tuesday from the southern English port of Plymouth, from where British naturalist Darwin’s own expedition began in 1831, leading him to develop the theory of evolution by natural selection.
