'The Cove' Director Louie Psihoyos To Shoot 3D Mass Extinction Documentary

The Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), the nonprofit organization that brought moviegoers The Cove, is working on its next film project, The Singing Planet.

In a recent interview with Momentum, "The Cove" director Louie Psihoyos said, "We're shooting a 3D film about the mass extinction of wildlife caused by humanity -- I think it's the biggest story out there right now."

Since "The Cove" premiered at Sundance back in January 2009, there has been enormous support for the small nonprofit that helped create the film. According to OPS numbers, more than 1,300,000 many people have taken action to end dolphin slaughter in Japan.

OPS partners with major organizations to address animal rights, oceanic, censorship, and environmental issues. They hope to inspire individuals to take action in protecting our world's diminishing resources.
