This documentary was an amazing look at how animals are treated across the globe and used as commodities. The fact that got me was that by eliminating meat and cheese one day a week for a year from our diets, it would be like taking over 7,000,000 vehicles off the road. The end of the documentary where images are cast onto buildings was very moving. It all starts with education. While I do not condone the behavior of the people and communities engaging in these unethical and illegal practices, I think they may suffer from a lack of education and a lack of knowledge on how to make money doing other more ethical things. This was shown when the islanders in Indonesia were shown how to transition from hunting manta rays (such beautiful animals) to creating a tourist industry based on the manta ray.

Well done undercover documentary. Exposes the horrors of how animals are commodities for human greed and profit. How is this acceptable and the lack of a moral compass is confounding. (it isn't all because of poverty).

This is a must watch for every human on the planet. We have so much power to make the changes necessary and this documentary provides a powerful insight into what we are losing.
