Darwin’s Day Celebrations
29 August 2005 Filed in: Darwin News
2009 will be the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species. A website has been formed by a group in the United States with the aim of co-ordinating celebrations to acknowledge Darwin’s contribution to our lives. It is supported by an Advisory Board consisting of the heavyweight promoters of modern Darwinian thought. Hopefully Looking for Darwin will add to the public’s awareness of Darwin and the import of his ideas in the run-up to the anniversaries.
