Team Room: I’m preparing this post by Travis Lively now for It’s an interview with Craig Sawyer regarding his upcoming debut on Animal Planet with “BATTLEGROUND: Rhino WARS.”  It involves 3 SEALs and an SF 18 DELTA medic working in South Africa to take on Rhino Poachers, and that seems like a pretty worthy effort! – Charlie


What do you get when you send three elite US Navy SEALs and a US Army Special Forces Green Beret, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and weapons, on a mission to stop poachers from killing off the last of Africa’s wild rhinoceros population?  You get “Muscular Conservation.”  This is the beginning of a new and innovative strategy Animal Planet appears to be adopting in an effort to assist with curbing the rampant poaching of the world’s most exotic, majestic and endangered species.   

BATTLEGROUND: RHINO WARS is a new Animal Planet mini-series, which could serve as a template for this new innovative and unconventional approach animal conservation.   This mini-series also appears to have helped inspire A-list actor, Tom Hardy, with the help of Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, to come up with the idea of an anti-poaching movie late last summer.
