A RACE WE CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE
Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) assembles a team of artists and activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that expose issues of endangered species and mass extinction.
WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF THE 6TH MASS EXTINCTION.
In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it. From the Academy Award® Winning Filmmakers of “The Cove”.
When you’re talking about losing all of nature,
this is not a spectator sport anymore.
Everybody has to become active somehow.
Everybody on our team has been able to adapt their talent to this bigger cause.
It doesn’t matter who you are — everybody has the power to use their skill to solve this bigger issue.
