Charles Darwin

Darwin and his theory In 1835, a hundred and seventy-eight years ago, a British young man aboard the HMS Beagle, under the command of Commander Robert Fitz-Roy, was on these coasts. A naturalist of only twenty-two whose work made the Beagle one of the most famous ships in history. This famous brigantine of the British Royal Navy began its journey on December 27, 1831 in Plymouth Bay, embarking on a trip that would take almost five years of its life through Cape Verde, Brazil, Argentina and the Falkland Islands, Tierra of Fire, Chile, Peru, the Galapagos, Australia, the Cocos Islands or Cape Town. Throughout this long journey, Darwin devoted most of his time to geological investigations on the mainland and studying the specimens of numerous species, while the Beagle carried out its scientific mission by measuring ocean currents and mapping the coasts. After landing in the Galápagos, Darwin remained in these remote lands for just five weeks, searching for signs of an old "creation center". During his investigations he was able to distinguish several varieties of small terrestrial birds that were related to their distant continental neighbors, but they had clear differences among themselves, even among the different islands. Some birds that would later become an icon of evolution, known as Darwin's Finches.
