RACING EXTINCTION: An award-winning Discovery Channel documentary and Sundance Festival selection. 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. ln "Racing Extinction" the Oceanic Preservation Society, along with some new innovators, will bring a voice to the thousands of species on the very edge of life.
