Discover where the real and wizarding worlds intertwine, and how the wonders of the natural world have inspired myths, legends and magical creatures for generations.  

Embark on a journey where not all is as it seems, where magical beasts and fantastic animals share abilities and behaviours that allow them to dazzle, attract and escape. 

Celebrate real-world explorers who, like the character Newt Scamander™, help us to understand our planet's extraordinary creatures so we can protect them for the future.
