Researchers are conducting a count of endangered Amur leopards in the national park using camera footage. A leopard cub that’s been adopted by Jean-Claude Killy has gone missing, and the Olympic champion offers to pay for a helicopter to search for her. The chopper comes in handy in tracking down a gang of persistent poachers as well. With eyes in the sky and lots of men and vehicles on the ground, the rangers give chase as the poachers try to make their escape. The poachers find themselves caught in a trap, but are not detained without a fight. Meanwhile, hours of sifting through remote camera footage pays off, and the missing leopard cub is discovered alive and well.
