Percival previously captured the eagle's mate, and knows they can make you rich. Percival wants to make the Rangers believe Cody was eaten, so he throws his backpack to the crocodiles. A mouse Cody rescues from a trap goes to get help from the Rescue Aid Society. The message successfully reaches the Rescue Aid Society in New York. Bernard and Bianca are field agents of the society and accept the mission. They convince a friend's brother to fly them to Australia where they meet a kangaroo mouse named Jake.
