Photographer and filmmaker Adrian Steirn travels from Africa to Azerbaijan in search of the highly endangered Caucasian leopard.

According to Oxu.Az, this near-mythical creature is on the brink of extinction in a land of remarkable biodiversity and stark contrasts between ancient heritage and rapid modernisation. Steirn is joined by an eclectic group of experts including an African tracker, a Russian scientist and the local 'leopard man'.

Meet Babakhan. He's one of the most dedicated men Adrian Steirn had the honour of meeting. The Azerbaijani tracker did not rest until they'd secured footage.

Will he capture the first photographic evidence of the world’s most wanted leopard?

The program will be aired on Nat Geo Wild at 20.00 on December 8.
