About admiral FITZROY

Admiral Sir Robert Fitzroy commanded the HMS Beagle during its remarkable voyage of discovery around the natural world in 1831-36.

It was Fitzroy who charted this ambitious expedition and encouraged Charles Darwin to embark with him thus enabling one of the fundamental developments of modern bioscience, the Theory of Evolution.

The Fitzroy Mountain Range in his honour (pictured) is today one of the best preserved biodiverse natural areas in the world, a fitting representation of our Firms’s focus in the biochemical basis of improved and sustainable health
