Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) assembles a team of artists and activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that expose issues of endangered species and mass extinction.

Whether infiltrating notorious black markets with guerilla-style tactics or exploring the scientific causes affecting changes to the environment, “Racing Extinction” will change the way we see the world and our role within it.

This is a new documentary that is warning us that we are in the midst of a mass extinction of animals — and the biggest accelerator in that loss of thousands of species is mankind itself.

Well, this is going to be interesting. I’m definitely interested in it and have already set my dvr. There will be some reaction after it airs, but just seeing that piece above on NBC Nightly News has me with all the feels right now.
