Biologists have identified around 1,500,000 (1.5 million) animal species alive on the Earth today. But how many extinct animals do you think there are? From dinosaurs to dodos, there must be thousands? In fact, scientists estimate that as many as 4,000,000,000 (4 billion!) animal species have become extinct since life on Earth began… 

Now imagine a place where the last one of all these billions of species goes when it’s extinct? A weird and wonderful island, teeming with incredible extinct life, stretching back from now to the beginning of time. An island of forgotten creatures, of dinosaurs and Tasmanian Wolfs, Cocklebur Icks, Great Auks and Passenger Pigeons, Foul-Smelling Bog Hoppers, wind-powered inflatable Pterosaurs and a very unpleasant 9ft tall, guitar-riffing primeval insect.
