The Gist: A documentary about the current state of the world's animal life and how humans are accelerating a new mass extinction event.
This is one of those documentaries that really pull at my heartstrings and end up making me incredibly sad and mad, because I love nature and animals so much.
Frankly, it is a disgrace that the world governments don't do more to protect the beauty of our world and the marvelous creatures that have all made it their home.
It was nominated for a Best Original Song Oscar for the end-titles' track, Anohni's Manta Ray, which itself was the cause of some controversy (read more about it here).
The Bottom Line: Racing Extinction is a must see documentary for every human on the planet. Watch it now before it's too late.
