While waiting to enter the hot new dinosaur exhibit, a visitor to the Museum of Natural History stumbles upon the “Hall of Endangered Species.” At the push of a button, they’re* swept into the colorful personal lives of endangered animals who are doing anything and everything to stay alive and stay relevant: Manny the manatee is creating a new public relations campaign, Pole the polar bear is panhandling to tourists, Stack the Panamanian Golden frog is pleading asylum, and Blobby the blobfish is, well, dead…but loving it! With all their ingenuity and spunk, will these animals manage to survive?
