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 volcanos, these men and women are searching for answers to some of the world's greatest scientific mysteries. Out of their labs and into the wilderness, they place their lives into the hands of a brotherhood of elite survivalists who are sworn to keep every expedition safe, risking their lives to ensure everyone completes their mission and gets out alive. TRAILBLAZERS takes us on a wild journey of modern-day exploration only on Discovery Channel.
Each hour-long episode will follow three elite survivalists as they lead separate teams of scientists through some of the most dangerous regions of the world in the search for clues and discoveries that could lead to scientific breakthroughs. From the largely unexplored island of Papua New Guinea, to the Jurassic Park-like jungles of Bolivia and the volcanic landscapes of Ecuador - 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, 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.
