Rhinos are in retreat. In their constant battle with mankind and changing climate, these prehistoric giants keep losing. From Europe they vanished thousands of years ago, with nothing but faint cave paintings remaining in their wake. In Asia a handful are roaming the last fragments of rainforest and in Africa their survivors are forced behind electric fences, guarded by heavily armed rangers. On the black market the price of rhino horn is worth more than gold and continues to rise. The result is a massive wave of poaching, sweeping the entire world.
Follow a team of dedicated scientists as they venture deep into the jungles of Malaysia, fly over grasslands of South Africa or crisscross the world's zoos. Everywhere they stretch the limts of our knowledge, develop and test new tools and veterinary protocols. They apply cutting edge technology in order to collect, conserve and use the invaluable genetic material of the rhinoceros to save these animals.
