With encyclopaedic precision and unrelenting intensity, man's destruction of wild life is cataloged in this provocative and moving nature spectacular. This is a eulogy to the 160 species that have died out in the last 50 years and a last farewell to the hundreds of threatened animals whose extinction is inevitable despite any last minute efforts. Employing rare footage of threatened wild animals in their natural state, the film strongly challenges man to re-think his role in nature and his relationship to wild life. Man must share the earth or say goodbye, not only to wild creatures, but, ultimately, to man himself. Narrated by Rod McKuen.
