O Canada! Rohan, Umedh, Amy, Nimal, Anu, Gina and Mich are overjoyed to be together at the Manipau Wildlife Conservation Centre (MWCC), located in the lower Rocky mountains in western Canada, and home to Amy and Mich Larkin. They are delighted that land directly east of the Manipau border is under construction to build an entire Conservation Community for senior citizens. This community will become involved, through Manipau, in educating family and friends about the importance of protecting animals and the environment. Driving home from the Calgary airport, Janet Larkin, Mich and Amy's mom, receives a call - a female grizzly bear is seriously injured and her cubs are distraught. Janet, who had not wanted to spoil the JEACs' reunion, reluctantly informs them of a recent problem with missing grizzlies at their Centre. Upon reaching the Centre, Nimal soothes the mother bear, and to the delight of the others, undertakes to look after the cubs. Predictably, the JEACs, and four new Canadian friends, are determined to discover why grizzlies are being decimated, and by whom - this simply cannot be allowed!
