Racing Extinction

Fri 20 Oct 2017


Filmmaker Louie Psihoyos, along with activists, scientists and others, draws attention to mankind's role in a potential loss of at least half of the world's species.

Tickets: £7 / £6 Conc / £5 Students

BBFC: Contains mild bad language, footage of real animal hunting and slaughter

Human actions negatively impact the environment. If we don't change soon, half of the world's species may be gone within the next 100 years!

Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos assembles a team of artists and activists on an undercover operation to expose the hidden world of endangered species and the race to protect them against mass extinction. Spanning the globe to infiltrate the world’s most dangerous black markets and using high tech tactics to document the link between carbon emissions and species extinction, the film reveals stunning, never-before seen images that truly change the way we see the world.


Join us for a panel led by Dr. Christian Schröder (Senior Lecturer of Biological & Environmental Studies, University of Stirling), who will be joined by Kirsty Park (Professor of Conservation Ecology) and Nils Bunnefeld (Professor of Conservation Science).
