The programme looks at the work of Dr Ulysses S. Seal, who travels around the world trying to save threatened species, largely through using all forms of reproductive science to breed new animals. It also covers an encounter between Seal and conservationists in Java, over the Javan Rhino, the latter arguing that the species should be left alone and protected in the wild, rather than be taken onto Seal's "technological ark".
