Racing Extinction: A Race We Can’t Afford to Lose

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 who 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”.)

Preventing species from going extinct in the face of so many threats takes collaboration. Everyone – from federal agencies to global corporations, to each of us – has to commit to the same set of actions when a species is in danger of disappearing forever.

Together, we can protect the species from disappearing forever. Join us on Monday and find out how you can be part of the solution.
