As a born and bred Florida boy and a passionate environmentalist, there’s nothing I love more than celebrating those who are working hard to protect my home state’s precious ecosystems.

Operation Wild, which premieres this Friday, November 5 at 9pm ET/PT on Planet Green, follows the men and women of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission as they preserve and protect the area’s natural habitats.

Armed with air boats and four-wheel drives, the team maneuvers through the rugged back roads of the Florida swampland arresting criminals, protecting animals, and making sure nobody messes with Mama Earth. So basically, rockstar stuff!

“We have to protect the land, the sea, the air — including all the critters that walk on the land, all the fish that swim in the ocean, and all the birds that fly in the air,” says one FWC officer.
