This mission can be acquired from the angaran biologist on the ice floe outside Techiix.
Track the poachers Edit
There are two initial locations on the world map, north-east and north-west of Techiix respectively. Both will be small portable shelters, already abandoned by the poachers. After the first camp is found, Jaal will comment that the poachers must be following the yevara.
Read poacher datapad Edit
The second camp contains a datapad, with the following message:
Find poacher camp Edit
Once both camps have been explored, a final waypoint appears east of Eroesk, where a cave is located. Take out a camp of raiders outside the cave entrance, then head into the cave.
Investigate poacher cave Edit
There is another squad dug in inside; defeat them. Ryder and the team follow a path mined through the ice to a final cavern, where an angaran doctor, Dr. Lekaaret is waiting for them.
Lekaaret explains that the yevara appear to contain enzymes which could counteract the effect of kett weapons, and is capturing them to find out. Jaal is horrified, which leads Lekaaret to note that the angaran preference for tradition blinds them to the possibility, although the doctor thinks that - if she is allowed to continue with her research - they will eventually accept her work.
It is for Ryder to decide whether to allow the research to continue, Jaal stating that he cannot make the choice.
If Ryder decides not to allow the research to continue, they will instruct SAM to transmit information on Lekaaret's actions to the Angaran Resistance, and advise the angaran to get off the planet while she can.
If Ryder decides to let her continue her research, they say that Lekaaret has to be upfront with the angara about it. Lekaaret thanks Ryder, saying that her research will work.
