Panda Babies: Mission Critical
48 minutes
World Premiere
https://vimeo.com/176795841

Mission Critical tackles stories that are as urgent as they are timeless, traveling to every corner of the globe to show us what we need to know now—to save iconic species from extinction, protect ourselves, and make way for a better, more sustainable planet. There are fewer than 2,000 giant pandas left in the wild and the race is on to build up their numbers. We visit three panda centers in China where panda babies are born and bred. Go behind the scenes to follow individual pandas through the different stages of their development. Prepare to see pandas as you’ve never seen them before.

Operation Sumatran Rhino: Mission Critical
48 minutes
World Premiere
https://vimeo.com/178076504
A race against time is ongoing in Malaysia. Conservationist’s are on a mission to save the country’s last remaining Sumatran Rhinos. But the only way to achieve this, is to capture all remaining individuals in the wild – a dangerous and costly operation. Operation Sumatran Rhino chronicles Malaysia’s foremost rhino scientists in their incredible quest to save this critically endangered species.
