This presentation will introduce the Anthropocene age and our species' part in its emergence. A short illustrated talk with data from relevant museum observations will explain how natural history dioramas of the 19th and early 20th centuries can contribute to teaching and learning about the earth science and the dependent fauna and flora adapted to it. The Anthropocene has brought about changes in climate and hence habitat and the resultant effects on the associated biodiversity. Natural History dramas from the past serve as one tool in an introduction to understanding the dynamic components of a documented natural history habit and can provide opportunities introducing biological conversation
