"Helping to understand our world, working to protect it, and welcoming people from all its four corners"

To make up for the fact that I was apparently mute in my live webcast today (thanks for letting me know, Richard, I've passed your comment onto NHM's Nature Live team), I give you a sleek and sah-weet new vid of the new Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum. It's really fantastic. Click it!
"...our very own metamorphosis..."

My one qualm? The part where the narrator tells us hundreds of species are going extinct before we even know they exist and then says, "But don't worry--well not too much--90% of all living things are still to be discovered." Uh, no. I'm sorry, I know this isn't cheerful enough for a public promo video, but do worry.

Other than that the video is gorgeous and inspirational.
