Stopping the Extinction Crisis w/ CBD : IndybayPosted by On


The Center for Biological Diversity is helping launch an exciting project to resurrect the histories of extinct animals in a surprising new way: through the popular roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons. We’re partnering with creator Lucas Zellers and Mage Hand Press to release “The Book of Extinction,” a game manual that tells the stranger-than-fiction true stories of animals now lost, alongside game statistics giving them new life as fantasy monsters.

Join us on Thursday, March 23, at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET to find out more about this creative project and how we’re expanding our efforts to save life on Earth.

This event is free, but registration is required, so sign up and check your email for a link.
