About the Show

Poaching, disease and human encroachment are now part of an animal's life on the African plains. There is a desperate need to protect the continent's magnificent and diverse species and sometimes the only way to do this is to move them… somewhere else. This is where Game Capture teams prove their worth and it is into this exciting and dangerous world that we journey. From the mighty elephant to the stately giraffe – each capture is different. Each animal reacts in a unique way to the drugs used and the treatment they receive. The intrepid men and women in this hazardous line of work can never become complacent. To lose their edge could mean death or terrible injury either for themselves or for the animals in their care.
