From the filmmakers behind The Cove, Academy Award-winning director Louie Psihoyos now bears witness to another global problem—mankind's role in precipitating mass extinction, potentially resulting in the loss of half of the world's species.

He joins forces with activists, scientists, nature photographers, and cutting-edge inventors with an affirming call to action to stem the tide before it's too late.

While covert operations reveal the horrific black-market trade in endangered aquatic species, the film's broader lens uncovers the even more disastrous consequences of human activity, chiefly the release of ocean-killing methane and carbon from energy consumption.

The Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring call to action to preserve life as we know it.
