We join famous scientist and explorer Charles Darwin as he sails off to South America with his crew. The explorer ship Beagle takes him to beaches that were unknown to Europeans at the time. Darwin was the first European to document the region's intriguing animal species; one of these is the armadillo.

The series is extensively researched, and bases its story on Darwin's life and work. The art style is unique and consciously distinct from traditional styles that we see in modern animation. Our main goal is to maintain Darwin's rich legacy and teach younger generations about respecting nature.


In part one of the series The Voyage of the Beagle, we explore this intriguing and mysterious animal, its habits and related species. Throughout the episode, we get to know a young armadillo and follow him on his journey to find his family.

 The Love of Galapagos Tortouise

In part two, the ship Beagle safely lands on the Galápagos island, where we encounter a new species: the Galápagos tortoise. Here, the story follows a family of tortoises as they make their way across the island.
