Dispatches reporter Oliver Steeds travels the globe to investigate the conservation movement and its major organisations. On his journey, Steeds finds that the movement, far from stemming the tide of extinction which is engulfing the planet, has got some of its conservation priorities wrong. The film examines the way the big conservation charities are run. It questions why some work with polluting big businesses to raise money and are alienating the very people they need in order to stem the loss of species from earth. Conservation is massively important but few dare to question the movement. Some critics argue that it is in part getting it wrong and as a consequence, some of the flora and fauna it seeks to save are staring oblivion in the face.
