Trailblazers takes us on a wild journey of modern-day exploration.
The quest to expand the boundaries of human knowledge takes scientists to the edges of the Earth, where unseen peril lurks around every corner. From the deepest and darkest rainforest jungles to the edges of active volcanoes, these men and women are searching for answers to some of the world's greatest scientific mysteries.
Out of their labs and into the wild, they place their lives into the hands some elite survivalists who must keep every expedition safe, risking their necks to ensure everybody makes it in, completes their mission, and gets out alive.
Each episode follows three elite survivalists as they lead separate teams of scientists through some of the most dangerous regions of the world - from the largely unexplored island of Papua New Guinea, to the jungles of Bolivia and the volcanic landscapes of Ecuador - in the search for clues and discoveries that could lead to scientific breakthroughs.
Gary Humphrey, Nick Koumalatsos and Shaun Keilen represent some of the most elite trailblazers in the world, with decades of combined survival experience between them. But do these trailblazers have what it takes to not only survive the harsh elements, but accomplish their mission while keeping everyone on their team safe?
Harsh elements, dangerous creatures, and lethal terrain are just a few of the obstacles the trailblazers and scientists must face, but putting egos aside and working as a team to accomplish each mission may prove to be the ultimate challenge. The stakes are high, but the rewards could change the world... and science as we know it.
