A team of scientific detectives from around the world attempt to crack one of science’s most enduring mysteries – what killed Australia’s megafauna? Long after the extinction of the dinosaurs, extraordinary species of giant beasts roamed the earth, ruling the animal kingdom for hundreds of thousands of years. But suddenly, inexplicably, they vanished.

As scientists re-open this prehistoric cold case, could the answer to their quest offer clues to our own survival and prevent a future mass extinction on an unfathomable scale?
