Eight British teenagers spend a month on the front line of wildlife conservation. Arriving in Madagascar, they’re split into two teams: one ventures into the hills in search of the elusive black-and-white ruffed lemur, while the other treks deep into the dense lowland bamboo thicket on the trail of one of the rarest primates on earth, the greater bamboo lemur.

About this programme

Eight ordinary children from the UK travel to the frontline of conservation in Madagascar to witness the dangers threatening the wildlife there - and to learn what can be done to try and make a difference. The team arrives in Madagascar and straight away tracks down two of the world's rarest lemurs. They also come face-to-face with the problems directly facing these creatures and join some lemur scientists to get hands on collaring some special animals.
