BECAUSE NO ONE CAN AFFORD THE PRICE OF EXTINCTION
Will we stop the Earth’s Sixth Mass Extinction in time?
The Price is a feature documentary (currently in post-production) that tells the story of the approaching Sixth Mass Extinction. Now recognized as more threatening to human existence than even climate change, this manmade cataclysm has the potential to wipe 75% of existing species from the planet, including much of the human race.
Standing as a gatekeeper at the brink of this evolutionary abyss is the ancient rhino. With its horn gram for gram THE MOST EXPENSIVE ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE in world black-markets today and all five of its species facing extinction, the rhino is a powerful symbol for the 1,000 to 30,000 plant and animal species now disappearing at thousands of times the natural rate each year.
Offering viewers one of the most comprehensive explorations ever undertaken of the bloody Rhino Wars and the fate of the rhino, The Price shines a light upon the cultural practices, economics, international laws, and pervasive corruption that are driving not just the destruction of the rhino, but a vast majority of what remains of the wild world.
