In the last 500 million years, the earth has experienced five mass extinctions.
Is humankind creating a sixth extinction?
In 1900, the earth held 1.6 billion people. Today, we have increased almost five-fold to 7 billion, and are projected to reach 15 billion by the end of this century.
Our rapid growth has led to habitat destruction, pollution and climate change. Through interlocking stories, this documentary will probe the extinction crisis and examine solutions to protect the earths gift of biodiversity.
