Upcoming Documentary: Racing Extinction

Credit: Oceanic Preservation Society

An upcoming documentary from the director of The Cove challenges humans about the role we play in wiping out species from the planet

Half of all species in the world could die out within the next 100 years if we don’t change our destructive ways. That’s the premise of a new documentary, Racing Extinction, in which filmmaker Louie Psihoyos and the Oceanic Preservation Society team expose the ways in which humans contribute to the loss of biodiversity.

With the aim to ‘change the way we see the world and our role within it’, the film tells a new extinction narrative: that it no longer happens organically over a long period of time but is now greatly accelerated as a result of human actions. Humans continuously harm already endangered species whether unwittingly, through carbon emissions that are invisible to the naked eye, or knowingly, through culling and illegal wildlife trade.

Watch the trailers below:

Racing Extinction will premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Find out more about the film at www.racingextinction.com.
