A bold mission to save species on the brink of extinction from the Oscar-winning filmmakers of The Cove.
Louie Psihoyos founded the non-profit organisation Oceanic Preservation Society, produced Academy Award-winning film The Cove and has helped reduce the slaughter of dolphins and whales in Taji and worldwide. What next? Louie and his team are tackling the biggest issue on our planet. The current, human-caused mass extinction event. Although largely ignored by the media and politicians, collapsing biodiversity critically undermines society. Our civilisation is founded on planet earth's ecosystems. As species are lost, ecosystems change. Lose too many species and the change could be catastrophic for humanity. We have to preserve enough wild spaces for other creatures to thrive. Scientists are saying we could lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. Behind this mass extinction? Us. The OPS team is pulling off The Heist to inspire people to take action on behalf of the species that are blinking out on our watch.
