Youngsters dressed up as the creatures that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution during workshops held at several local schools, organised by the wildlife artist and former Woldgate College pupil Robert Fuller.

Pupils from Newbald Primary School dressed as Galapagos penguins as they attended the fun workshops on natural selection whilst children at Bishop Wilton Primary wore blue on their feet to represent birds from the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, named blue footed boobies.

And Warter Primary School students wore red in order to represent Galapagos frigate birds, unusual birds that puff up their throats like toads when courting.

The workshops, which also took place at Woldgate College, were run by the London-based Galapagos Conservation Trust on behalf of Mr Fuller.
