Undercover activists try to stave off a man-made mass extinction.

In this globe-trotting documentary, Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos assembles a team of scientists, activists, and journalists on an undercover operation to expose the hidden world of endangered species and the race to protect them against mass extinction. Spanning the globe to infiltrate the world’s most dangerous black markets and using high-tech tactics to document the link between carbon emissions and species extinction, Racing Extinction reveals stunning, never-before-seen images that truly change the way we see the world.
