"My Darwin 200 year has taken me around the world. I explored the high Andes in search of potatoes, combined my experiences of painting birds with the ballet in France and helped to inspire nearly 200 children to paint their own Darwin paintings. I have also had the most marvelous experiences on my days at the Zoo in Newquay with my easel covered in lemurs and my toes nibbled by meerkats !" John Dyer 2009.
Chapters included in the book:
Paintings from the Zoo
Paintings from the High Andes of Peru

"A successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund has led the Falmouth Art Gallery to receive an award of £50,000 to undertake a year long project to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin.
Part of the award has been used to fund John Dyer to be the resident artist for Darwin 200 working with Newquay Zoo. The John Dyer Gallery is delighted to be working with Falmouth Art Gallery on this exciting project."
