When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.
The reason Claire suddenly cares about the dinosaurs so much in this movie because in Jurassic World (2015), she viewed them as essentially profit numbers and data. Over the course of Jurassic World (2015), she witnessed the dying moments of an Apatosaurus, and the distinction between Hoskins' cruelty getting him killed by Delta and Owen's kindness towards Blue, getting the raptors back on their side. She's come to see what Owen sees: these are living, breathing creatures that deserve respect, and they will be as kind to us as we are to them. Further underlining this is the fact that she herself was responsible for the Indominus Rex being such a psycho, something that has likely weighed on her mind for several years. I'll grant that Claire's arc isn't the most smoothly written, but it does at least follow an internal logic. She's also the one who aimed Rexy at the Indominus Rex. The hands-down most fearsome and dangerous predator ever to walk the Earth saved hers, her nephews', and her boyfriend's asses when worst came to worst. That's bound to instill some respect and admiration for the dinosaurs as a whole. One of Claire's big personality traits is responsibility. It manifests mostly in Jurassic World (2015) as negatively-portrayed workaholicness and dismissiveness to the little things, because she feels it's her responsibility to keep the park open and making money, and she has her eye on that ball. Once she realizes her nephews are missing, she takes the responsibility on herself to find them and bring them back safely, refusing to let Owen leave her behind, even though she's tromping through the jungle in high heels. Once the park is closed and Masrani is probably going bankrupt dealing with the fallout, it makes sense that she considers the dinosaurs her responsibility, since no one else is.
Relax. Anything in here would be dead by now.
When Wheatley pulls a tooth out of a juvenile stegosaurus with his pliers, it shows him yanking out a bottom tooth, but when he adds the tooth to his collection it is an upper tooth.
