Two hundred thousand years ago, when Homo sapiens first emerged, there were probably at first only a few hundred of us. Now, in the 21st century, the global population is fast approaching 10-billion people. At first, we humans barely made an impact on the environment. But this has changed, as our technological abilities have progressed. Now our activities have serious implications for our planet, including the unusually fast extinction of species and global warming. Visit the exhibition and find out where you originate from and how your life is affecting the planet.
