Narrated by Academy Award winner, Dame Helen Mirren and 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 on the brink of extinction.
The very web of life on Earth is being threatened in what scientists are calling a ‘Sixth Mass Extinction.’ American Humane traveled the world documenting the work of the major zoological organizations that can only be called nature’s last arks of hope in preserving the rich legacy of life on our planet. Without this help – and the global engagement of the public – the biological treasures we hoped to bequeath to our children and our grandchildren may disappear forever within a generation.
American Humane’s first feature documentary “Escape from Extinction” showcases the critical efforts certified zoos and aquariums are undertaking to preserve millions of species on the verge of disappearing forever. The film is directed and produced by Matthew Brady of MRB Productions.
