Animal extinction is a global issue occurring on such a large scale that it can often be difficult to imagine its severity. This documentary, narrated by Helen Mirren, dives into the problem and the great efforts being taken to preserve animal species across all seven continents such as rhinos, koalas and orangutans. Featuring interviews with some of the key leaders in conservation and including rare footage of endangered animals across land and sea, the film brings awareness to this urgent issue. The documentary is accessible and appealing for young audiences, inspiring them with suggestions of small and big actions one can take to protect animals and the environment.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
