February 12, 2011 marks the 201st birthday of Charles Darwin, the scientist whose theory of evolution revolutionized the biological sciences and changed the way we look at the natural world forever. Darwin Day, as this anniversary has come to be called, will be celebrated at lay and scientific centers of learning all over the world (for events near you, check out the International Darwin Day Foundation website). On or around Feb. 12, there will be lectures, parties, Galapagos Island cruises, debates, seminars, theatrical performances, field trips and even oddball celebrations like the notorious phylum feasts (see A Weird Way to Celebrate Darwin's Birthday).


Of course, that’s not the fishy thing happening in L.A. (Hint: it involves gogo fish from Australia).
