Aerial cinematographer, animal rescuer and environmental activist Doug Thron is back with his next-generation infrared drone technology, going from one disaster-torn corner of the world to another, rescuing wild animals, lost puppies, and everything in-between.


Aerial cinematographer, animal rescuer and environmental activist Doug Thron is back for a second season of Doug To The Rescue, allowing cameras to follow along as he uses his cutting-edge infrared drone to locate and rescue animals in desperate situations around the globe. This season, he’s going further than ever, encountering animals in the wild like never before – from the East African Grasslands where the communities struggle to live in harmony with a growing hyena population… to the Dominican Republic… to tornado-ravaged Kentucky towns - working with scientists, experts, and conservationists to pioneer new paths for his cutting edge technology. Whether it’s a wild fox, a newborn puppy, or a pack of urban hyenas, Doug is on a mission to make sure no animal is left behind.


The Curiosity original series Doug To The Rescue is produced for Curiosity by Lone Wolf Media. Executive producers are Kirk Wolfinger and Ezra Wolfinger for Lone Wolf Media. Jorge Franzini, VP of Original Content Development & Programming for Curiosity, also serves as executive producer.


Episode 1: Dominican Republic: In our season opener, Doug takes his drone to the Dominican Republic to rescue puppies that have been abandoned in the municipal town dump.

Episode 2: Malawi: At the request of a conservation research group, Doug heads to Malawi in East Africa to help track a pack of hyenas through the urban landscape.

Episode 3: In Malawi, Doug puts his infrared drone to the test, tracking huge fruit bats across the city and pioneering a new path for wildlife medical care.

Episode 4: Greenville, CA: After the Dixie Fire devastates the tiny CA town of Greenville, Doug heads in with his old friend Shannon to rescue the pet cats and wild animals that have been left behind in the burn zone.

Episode 5: Kentucky: In the season finale, Doug takes his drone to the tornado-ravaged towns of Kentucky to rescue the slew of cats and dogs that have been lost in the brutal December 2021 storm.

About Doug Thron:

As one of the most widely published aerial photographers in the country, Thron has been shooting professionally for 3 decades. After using his drones to film the devastation left in the wake of the 2018 “Camp Fires” in Paradise, CA, Doug joined efforts to rescue animals stranded in the burn zone. Driven by his commitment to the environment and his life-long love of animals, Doug now travels the globe, anywhere his unique talents and technology can help.
