In South America, Gordon flies over the Amazon in search of illegal loggers, and in the Andes he meets conservationists searching for new species before their habitat is destroyed.
Gordon Buchanan continues his journey around the equator, witnessing the fight to preserve the Amazon rainforest. In Brazil, he joins an aerial police patrol hunting for illegal loggers, while a local tribe map their territory from the air in a bid to prevent its destruction. Crossing the Andes, Gordon sees how eyes in the sky keep tabs on Ecuador’s endangered condors and visits a reserve where new species are being discovered, high up in the canopy of a pristine patch of cloud forest.
