Exhibition: Wild Planet at the Natural History Museum from March 23 until September 30 2012.

Wild Planet, the large-scale outdoor version of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will be taking up residence outside the Natural History Museum in Kensington this summer.

Eighty classic shots of endangered species from across the planet have been chosen by BBC wildlife presenter Chris Packham for the free show, which opens on March 23.

As well as enjoying the stunning imagery culled from past Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibitions, visitors will be able to read the stories of how the shots were taken together with insights into the species featured.
