More About This episode

Throughout Asia, tigers are under siege and on the brink of extinction. Burma may be their last hope -- if it's not already too late. Join our team of scientists and filmmakers as they venture deep into the Burmese jungles to prove tigers and other endangered creatures exist here and need protection from hunters and commercial development. The more animals they find, the more proof they'll have. But it's a tall order: A tiger hasn't been caught on film in this area in years, and this is no time to be camera shy.
