Shedding a new light on the disappearance of species.

With fears of an increasing number of species facing extinction, this exhibition asks: just how vital is the survival of a species to the future of the planet? Research suggests that extinction has an important role to play in the evolution of life and not just because of the dinosaurs.

The exhibition also looks to the future, asking which of the species will survive should we face another mass extinction like the one experienced 252 million years ago when 90 percent of the marine population disappeared. Finally, what hope is there for the human race in this natural armageddon?
