Happy Birthday Charles Darwin!
From the Galapagos Conservancy:
Sunday, February 12th marks the 203rd birthday of Charles Darwin, famous for developing his theory of evolution following a visit to the Galapagos Islands aboard the HMS Beagle. His study of endemic plants and animals — and the variation in their physical traits from island to island — was the foundation for his theory on natural selection.
“In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.”
– Charles Darwin
