  • H.M.S Beagle
  • Charles Darwin sailing to Galapagos Island in Captain Roberts" ship.
  • (A Naturalist is a person that studies nature history)
  • Hello, my name is Charles Darwin I am a naturalist. Today I am going to guide you through my Theory of Evolution...
  • Charles Darwin studying a group of birds
  • Charles Darwin thinking about all the birds and realizes that they are all related.
  • Different birds with different beaks to adapt.
  • From 1831 to 1836, he was part of a survey expedition carried out by the ship HMS Beagle, which included stops in South America, Australia, and the southern tip of Africa. At each of the expedition's stops, Darwin had the opportunity to study and catalog the local plants and animals.
  • Charles discovering why the birds look different: Because each of their beaks are shaped that way in order to catch food.
  • Over the course of his travels, Darwin began to see intriguing patterns in the distribution and features of organisms. We can see some of the most important patterns Darwin noticed in distribution of organisms by looking at his observations of the Galápagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.
  • Charles Darwin starts to wonder about how other animals are related.
  • Seems I was right! The natural evolution is having different species is varied depending on which island they went on and what food source that those islands had. For periods of time, those animals had to undergo sudden changes and able to adapt to their surroundings. Magnificent!
  • Darwin found that nearby islands in the Galápagos had similar but nonidentical species of finches living on them. Moreover, he noted that each finch species was well-suited for its environment and role.
  • The Legacy
  • For instance, species that ate large seeds tended to have large, tough beaks, while those that ate insects had thin, sharp beaks.

  • The theory of evolution by natural selection was explained by Charles Darwin in 1859. He said over generations physical traits and behaviors would be passed down to offspring, individuals with a more likely chance of survival in their environment reproducing offspring with their traits. Many without favorable traits will not survive and cannot pass those traits to offspring, over time this would create or remove attributes based on what they need to survive.
  • If he were still alive today, Charles Darwin would be proud of us. ... Charles Darwin, of course, is the father of the theory of evolution. He traveled the world and viewed all different kinds of organisms, wrote a ground-breaking book “On The Origin of Species,” and changed scientific thought forever. The species continue to evolve and we continue to know and understand their evolution.
