The Amazing Darwin200 Voyage

Over the summer of 2021, three Roots & Shoots UK members joined the DARWIN200 UK Voyage aboard the 45 m long tall ship Pelican of London. The objective of the voyage was to circumnavigate the UK and study the health of the marine environment around the British Isles.

The Roots & Shoots members joined professional researchers to undertake systematic studies of plastic pollution, megafauna (whales, dolphins, basking sharks), and seabirds to collect data for key conservation surveys, and to create live, interactive maps showcasing their findings!

All three Roots & Shoots reps did an amazing job and made memories for life! Thank you, Stewart McPherson, and Darwin200 for this incredible opportunity!
