Climate change and animal extinction are two of the biggest threats our environment faces today.
The natural world is declining at a terrifying rate. The wildlife trade is second only to the drug market trade in the world – that just shows how much money can be made from killing and selling endangered species.
Now a new film called Racing Extinction is being released to raise greater awareness of the imminent danger our planet is in.
It is spearheaded by Oscar winning director Louie Psihoyos, who made the shocking documentary The Cove about the illegal dolphin show trade in Japan.
