The battle to save majestic African animals from extinction is detailed in this riveting look at the plight of the cheetah and the rhinoceros.
On the African plains and in zoos around the world, a desperate battle is waged to save some of the planet's most recognizable animals from extinction.
RUNNING OUT OF TIME examines the plight of two endangered species the cheetah and the rhinoceros. Journey to the African savannah to meet Laurie and Dan Krause, an American couple devoted to saving the world's fastest animal. Explore the twin problems they face cheetahs are trapped and killed by African farmers to keep them from killing cattle, while the zoo populations are so chronically inbred that they are vulnerable to disease.
Likewise, as shown in THE FRAGILE FOSSIL, the rhinoceros is caught in its own dilemma they are stalked by poachers for their horns, and in the supposed safety of captivity, their fragile immune systems break down, leaving them susceptible to a deadly blood disorder.
From new conservation methods that seek to protect these natural treasures in their homes, to medical advances that are essential to their survival in captivity, RUNNING OUT OF TIME is a comprehensive look at the battle against extinction.
