About The Show
Follow undercover agents from the EIA (Environmental Investigation Agency) as they dive into the ruthless and murky world of illegal tiger trading. They are armed only with undercover cameras and a resilient dedication to protect the natural environment. The wild tiger population is on the brink of extinction – there are just over 3,000 left in the world. It's estimated that a century ago there were over 100,000 tigers globally. This hard-hitting documentary is on the front lines of the battle, following people with extraordinary stories who try to protect our endangered species from illegal exploitation.
