Is It Any Good?

Overall, OPERATION WILD highlights Florida's sophisticated ecosystem and the challenges the state faces to protect it. The show's content is pretty mild, but it still features some of the typical events associated with law enforcement reality shows -- like arguments with officers. There's also an attempt to create some extra drama with the use of ominous background music and trendy visual techniques.

Some viewers may find some of the policies discussed here a little frustrating, especially when well-intentioned citizens are reprimanded when trying to do the right thing when it comes to capturing and/or controlling wild animals. But animal lovers and environmentalists will most likely appreciate the efforts to protect the ecosystem that are being showcased here.
