The HMS Beagle Project

Shared publicly  - 
 
Dr. Karen James of the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory spoke about some of her projects, including extracting DNA from one of Darwin's bird specimens to help a conservation plan in the Galapagos and repeating a botanical survey done by Darwin near his home, Down House. She also talked about her work with The HMS Beagle Project, a UK-based charity that seeks to rebuild the famous little ship that carried Darwin around the world.
This lecture was given on May 30, 2013 at the Moore Auditorium on the campus of SERC Institute and Acadia National Park in Winter Harbor Maine.

(True story, honestly!) On this day in 1832, Charles Darwin's HMS Beagle shipmates fooled him with an April Fool's prank...

Bringing the adventure of science to life.
Introduction
What  We Do
The HMS Beagle Project combines hands-on learning opportunities with original scientific research relating to biodiversity and climate change. Find out more about our learning and science programmes around the globe.
Register for updates.

The Rebuild
We are working to rebuild the sailing ship 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.
