What does extinction mean to you? Death, the end? Or maybe a new start?
Giant deer, bizarre insects and super-sized birds... millions of species that once roamed the planet are no longer around.

This highly topical exhibition takes us beyond dodos and dinosaurs to explore the crucial role extinction plays in the evolution of life.
Using the latest scientific findings, we look at today's endangered species, such as the tiger and orangutan. We ask whether conservation can save them or could we be on the verge of causing the next mass extinction?
