The Operatives

We are fortunate to have an amazing amount of wildlife on this planet. However, illegal trading and poaching have dramatically reduced the livelihood of these magnificent creatures. Enter: "The Operatives". When famed eco-warrior Pete Bethune (Whale Wars) saw these atrocities, he took a stand and began assembling a group of highly trained, skilled, and motivated military elite with one mission: to expose suspected criminals who are endangering our wildlife and our environment. After two successful campaigns in Africa and Central America, the Operatives are now embarking on even bolder and more dangerous missions in Asia this year with a brand new team to tackle numerous threats to wildlife.
