Event Details

...and what can we do to save endangered species?

For as long as there have been species, there has been extinction. What causes it? Why do some species go extinct and what can we do to save endangered species?

Join Prof. Ben Garrod as he explores how extinction is one of the most complex, interesting and evolving topics. Writing about the most devastating mass extinctions to have affected the planet and life on it, Ben explores what happened to the world’s first super-predator, why one of the most successful animals of all time went extinct and how the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex was killed by a huge asteroid.
