Escape From Extinction

Narrated by Academy Award winner, Dame Helen Mirren, this high profile, eye-opening feature, which recently topped the US box office charts, explores our last and best chances of saving one million species on the brink of disappearing forever. 


Featuring rare footage of endangered animals and interviews with the world’s leading animal welfare and conservation specialists, this pioneering feature explores the critical efforts of zoos and aquariums across the globe as they race to protect and preserve animals from all seven of Earth’s continents. With the very web of life on Earth being threatened in what scientists are calling a ‘Sixth Mass Extinction’, such zoological organisations are 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.


Hard-hitting, hopeful and a film that resonates with audiences of all ages, this film is critical to mobilizing the support Earth’s animals need – and need now.
