This highly topical exhibition takes us beyond dodos and dinosaurs to explore the crucial role extinction plays in the evolution of life. Giant deer, bizarre insects and super-sized birds, millions of species that once roamed the planet are no longer around. In Extinction: Not the End of the World? astonishing images, real specimens and interactive installations will bring to life some of these amazing lost species as well as the remarkable stories of survivors of mass extinctions. Using the latest scientific findings, the exhibition looks at today’s endangered species, such as the tiger and orangutan, and asks whether conservation can save them or could we be on the verge of causing the next mass extinction?
