Zdravo Srbijo!

(That had better mean "Hello Serbia!" or else Bora is in big trouble.)

A Serbian newspaper article has mentioned The Beagle Project:
Поводом 200 година од Дарвиновог рођења, новчић са његовим портретом и – преко пута, сликом мајмуна, требало би да у Енглеској буде само један од начина обележавања овог јубилеја. Поред реконструисаног „Бигла”, очекује се и комплетирање Сабраних Дарвинових дела на Интернету.
Which means...
For the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth, a coin with his image and - on the other side a picture of a monkey - will be just one of many ways the jubilee will be celebrated in the UK. Along with rebuilding of the "Beagle", we also expect completion of Collected Darwin's Works on the Internet....
The article also says that the Serbian translation of Richard Dawkins' new book and the Janet Brown biography will be published in November to mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species here in England.

Bow of the sprit to Bora Zivkovic for both the tip and the translation.
