Hey! It's the leopard man!

- How you going, Larry?

- Hey, this is my brother, Ben.

He's the camera expert.

You taking over the filmmaking,

are you, mate?

That's right.

Well, hopefully not!

Ben's going to make a documentary

about the ah,

the trip, the ups and downs, everything.

If we can get a show

on the Javan leopard on TV,

that would really help the cause.

Absolutely, mate.

We're gonna get everything.

You've got a lot of stuff there.

I think you're bringing everything.

Yeah! You're carrying it for me,

aren't you?

Yeah, absolutely!

Card one, day one.

It's fantastic to be going on this trip.

It's great to be helping my little brother.

Larry's been working really hard

for a long time to get this happening,

and now it's all coming together.

We're going to Indonesia.

What's the line?

To prove, okay.

You're just talking to me, remember?

Okay, you're on.

So we're going to Indonesia to prove

there's a viable breeding population

of Javan leopards

in this remote area of West Java.

If we can do that,

the Indonesian government is prepared

to provide funding

to help protect them.

Now this land i-is being cleared

at an alarming rate for agriculture.

So the pressure is really on to find

and document these beautiful creatures

before it's too late.

Yeah, that was great, perfect.

Yeah, well he might be Mr. Big Cat expert,

but can he pull off a good piece to camera?

Yeah, you're on, mate.

This is the remote camera

we're taking to Indonesia.

I put some bread and

jam out last night to see

if we could get the

local possum to visit.

See if we got something.

Cut, yeah!

Well, no possum, but we got Frankie!

Frankie the terror dog!

Loves bread and jam!

Hey! Well, this is where

we watch for the leopards.

You know, we get the tranquilizer gun,

keep it ready here.

If we see one, we might take a few shots

with the camera

and take out the tranqs,

put the leopard down, hopefully get over

there and tag it before it wakes up.

That's all we have here.

It's where we see them from.


- Cup of tea time!

- That was good!

- Shall we do the cup of tea time line?

- No, don't worry about it.

As well as my field camera

and the remote camera,

we're also taking a tranquiliser gun,

some tracking gear and the radio collar

for the leopards once we tag them.

And this is my system

of animal management;

It's called the Look Analysis Detect System

of Fauna Management.

We've had these translated

into Indonesian for the boys.

Translated, f*ck!

- Okay?

- Yeah.

Good to go?

- Yes.

- Give me a sec, give me a sec.

Okay, and you're on.

- What do you want me to actually say?

- Well you know, ah tell us about yourself.

Um... hi.

I'm I'm Jane Black, ah Larry's wife.

Sorry, gonna have to get that.

Larry's been working with wild animals now

for a long time really,

ever since he was a kid

growing up on the farm.

But now since he started working

with big cats,

things have just gone crazy.

He gets to work

with these amazing animals and...

he's travelling all around the world.

It's okay. In your own time.

I know it's what he loves,

and I try to be supportive.

I want to be supportive.

It's just he's away so often,

and that makes it hard.

The markings on a leopard's coat are

unique, a bit like our fingerprints.

And ah we can use them

to identify individuals.

This one is Martine from Tanzania.


This is the first leopard I saw

in the wild.

Long time ago now.

You see an animal like that with nothing

between you and it, it's amazing.

I knew then and there

I wanted to help save these animals.
