Extinction: not the end of the world?Ninety-nine per cent of all species to have graced the Earth are extinct - does that mean we are fighting a lost cause? Asking whether extinction could mean a new start as opposed to an irrevocable end, this highly topical exhibition uses the latest scientific findings to study the real risk to today's endangered species.

Using astonishing images, real specimens and interactive installations, this Natural History Museum exhibition brings to life lost species such as giant deer, eerie insects and super-sized birds, and tells the remarkable stories of survivors of mass extinctions.
