The very web of life on Earth is being threatened in what scientists are calling a ‘Sixth Mass Extinction’. This pioneering feature, narrated by Academy Award winner, Dame Helen Mirren, documents the work of major zoological organisations that can only be called nature’s last arks of hope in preserving the rich legacy of life on our world. Without this help – and the global engagement of the public – the biological treasures we hope to bequeath to our children and our grandchildren may disappear forever within a generation.
Featuring rare footage of endangered animals as well as interviews with the world’s leading animal welfare specialists and conservation scientists working to protect and preserve animals from all seven of Earth’s continents, this hard hitting feature from the USA's first national humane organisation, American Humane. spotlights critical efforts that may be among the last, best chances to preserve one million species on the brink of disappearing forever.
