Craig and a passionate band of animal-loving supporters heal desperately ill tigers, and attempt to track down unscrupulous rhino killers. He also seeks out like-minded animal experts and conservationists around the globe (including "Wolf Man" Shaun Ellis) to help with his cause. Along the way, he adopts and raises an orphaned White Lion cub named Jabula and lovingly hand-rears several Barbary Lion cubs. Craig travels across the world to begin a long struggle of enhancing the bloodlines of these rare cats to bring them back from the brink of extinction.
