I’ve tried to remake my “Charles Darwin Has A Posse” with other languages, but have probably made terrible mistakes in all of them. I’ll eventually get it right. Until then, if you want to share any of the below today, go crazy. And if you’d like to print some stickers in the privacy of your own home, please go to my Charles Darwin Has A Posse page and download the PDF. Take photos of where you post them, then share on Twitter so we can all enjoy. I especially like to see them in public schools, for the obvious reasons.

If you need resources, here are disclaimers for biology textbooks, Charles Darwin Has a Posse stickers, and a Portable Darwin for your classroom.

Darwin Day is Feb 12th, so if you want to start making your own, visit the Portable Charles Darwin page. And if you’d like to see Carl Buell’s other illustrations, Glendon Mellow’s Symbiartic has a collection of links to such.
