Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. The Oceanic Preservation Society, the group behind the Academy Award-winning film The Cove, tackles that gargantuan issue in Racing Extinction.

An unlikely team of activists set out to expose the two worlds endangering species across the globe. The first threat to the wild comes from the international trade of wildlife. Bogus markets are being created at the expense of creatures who have survived on this planet for millions of years. The other threat is all around us, hiding in plain sight. There's a hidden world that the oil and gas companies don't want the rest of us to see. Director Louie Psihoyos has concocted an ambitious mission to call attention to our impact on the planet, while inspiring others to embrace the solutions that will ensure a thriving planet for future generations.
