After the Jurassic World events in 2015, a mercenary team led by Ken Wheatley (a big game and trophy hunter) arrives on the abandoned Isla Nublar to track and find dinosaurs that need to be saved from an impending volcanic eruption. But they were actually sent for other purposes... Jurassic World's former operations manager, Claire Dearing, has established the Dinosaur Protection Group to save the animals. Hammond's former partner, Sir Benjamin Lockwood, and his aide, Eli Mills, summons Claire to reveal a plan to relocate the dinosaurs to a new island sanctuary. So, Sir Lockwood hired mercenaries to assist the Dinosaur Protection Group in rescuing eleven species of dinosaurs from the doomed Isla Nublar. In reality, the mercenaries took orders from Lockwood's aide Eli Mills. They are hunting dinosaurs to collect DNA requested by Dr. Henry Wu and capturing them alive so that Mills can auction them off at Lockwood Manor (without Lockwood's knowledge or consent) to fund secret projects.
