Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth's history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or 'Age of Man', because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. We are the only ones who can stop it as well. The Oceanic Preservation Society, the group behind the Academy Award® winning film THE COVE, is back for "Racing Extinction". Along with some new innovators, OPS will bring a voice to the thousands of species on the very edge of life. An unlikely team of activists is 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.

for all the cast; you are one of few respectful unique documentary movie makers. I knew the world it going straight to that dead zone; but I never know it is going with this speed even this acceleration.
but after all I realized that the earth (mother nature) she is not going to die. she will survive. she already survived for millions of years.
she will live, we won't. so I used this as a message subject. the message I sent to almost everyone I know to watch this important movie.
About the movie itself; here is what I think is the tiny bad thing is I felt like you (and I mean who handled the documentation itself) wanted to show too many things in very sort time from my prospective. This movie I think it can be in sequels of at least 5 parts. Of course you delivered the message so perfectly. but it wasn't a full one.
