Film: Gambling on Extinction
April 16 @ 8:00 am - 9:20 am| Free
A powerful documentary about greed and a merciless battle over a limited resource: wild elephants and rhinos. There is a war against nature raging in the savannahs and jungles of Africa and Asia. The illegal trade in wildlife is estimated to generate $20 billion per year. Wildlife crime is a highly organized business, luring unscrupulous investors and warlords. We are facing the greatest mass extinction since the era of the dinosaurs and as numbers go down, the prices go up, making it a perverse futures market in extinction.
