Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) and the Reel Deal Theater will show at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 13, “Racing Extinction”, an undercover documentary exposing the hidden world of endangered species and the race to protect them from mass extinction.
This film is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors, students and children. Tickets are available at the Reel Deal Theater.
Produced by Oceanic Preservation Society, the group behind the Academy Award®-winning film The Cove, Racing Extinction brings a voice to the thousands of species teetering on the very edge of life. This highly charged, impassioned collective of activists sets out to expose the two major threats to endangered wild species across the globe.
The first comes from the international wildlife trade, and the medicinal “cures” and tonics that are marketed to the public at the expense of rare creatures. The second threat is carbon emissions and acidified oceans that are incompatible with existing animal life. Both threats are made clear in Racing Extinction through investigative reporting, undercover photography, and covert operations.
Though the subject of the film is dark, ultimately it inspires us all to embrace the solutions that will ensure a thriving, bio-diverse world for future generations.
