In a secure location in Kenya called the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Doc Nielsen meets rangers guarding a precious species behind the park's fences. Najin and Fatu are the last two northern white rhinos in the entire world. Driven to the brink of extinction by poaching, these rhinos are the only hope for the species. In the deserts of Abu Dhabi, Doc Ferds visits a hospital dedicated entirely to the care of falcons. Falcons are part of the tradition and culture of people in Abu Dhabi and in this hospital, these animals are given the best health care. Doc Ferds and his team later discover a reason why falcons may need medical attention: these birds, the fastest in the air, are trained for falconry sport.
