Yeehar.

The post on Pharyngula announcing the opening of the Beagle Project shop is in the list of top 5 most emailed posts on Scienceblogs.

Thanks to everyone who helped: each purchase includes a donation towards our project to build a replica HMS Beagle to celebrate Darwin's bicentenary and sail it round the world applying the tools of modern science (metagenomics, DNA barcoding, satellite imagery) to the science opportunities en route. We don't want 2009 to be just lectures and museum exhibits, we want something a 10 year old can see, get aboard, look around and think 'Cor! I want to be a part of this.' Then follow online wide eyed as we sail around Cape Horn. Buy the t-shirt, help the Beagle sail again.
