Aerial cinematographer Doug Thron is back for a second season, allowing cameras to follow along as he uses his cutting-edge infrared drone to locate and rescue animals in desperate situations around the globe. This season, he’s going further than ever, encountering animals in the wild like never before – from the East African Grasslands where the communities struggle to live in harmony with a growing hyena population… to the Dominican Republic… to tornado-ravaged Kentucky towns, working with scientists, experts, and conservationists to pioneer new paths for his cutting edge technology. Whether it’s a wild fox, a newborn puppy, or a pack of urban hyenas, Doug is on a mission to make sure no animal is left behind.
