A 'MUST' watch documentary for 'TODAY,' not tomorrow!!!
An incredible factual documentary, delving into the destruction that human beings are having on our precious planet.
The documentary is incredibly insightful! The creators have gone to great extent to backup their scientific facts.
This is a stunning documentary that will change the way you view your life and our fragile planet.
Like the documentary Black Fish that had a great effect and change on the way the public perceive animals in captive for human entertainment, Racing Extinction shines the same light but on the world over and the effect mankind is having on it......
THE WORLD MUST SEE THIS FILM 'TODAY'!
Congratulation to the Racing Extinction team and thank you. We need more people like you on this stunning world of ours!
