1832 – Brazil, with its exuberant nature, called the attention of foreigners, especially artists and young scientists from Europe. One of them, the English naturalist Charles Darwin, was really dazzled by our fauna, flora and also interested in the geological formations he found here, such as the mountains and valleys. In the state of Rio de Janeiro, Darwin traveled on horseback towards the north of Rio de Janeiro and made important observations. He collected samples of plants, insects and wrote down everything. The writings carried out on this expedition would later form part of his scientific studies, helping him even to carry out his most important work, the theory of the evolution of species.
