The Florida Everglades' Big Cypress Swamp, under the governance of people of the Seminole tribe, is home to more than 1,600 animals that run wild on thousands of acres. The Billie Swamp Safari offers visitors a chance to come face to face with the animals, ranging from ostriches and bison to venomous snakes and raccoons. The goal -- in line with Native Americans' love of harmony with nature -- is to immerse the visitors in the wild. But these close encounters sometimes lead to danger ... for both the people and the wildlife. The park's director, Ed Woods, and his tough team of self-described "swamp men" patrol the land to move animals out of dangerous situations and rescue animals in need.

So building wilderness retreats is a walk in the park by comparison, right? Not so fast. Paulie, as he is known, and master fabricator Pat "Tuffy" Bakaitis are partners in a cabin design and construction business called Cabin Kings, and in "Building Wild," the duo create unbelievable rustic getaways, transforming discarded materials into eye-catching contraptions and overcoming outrageous building challenges along the way. In each episode, Paulie and Tuffy provide the big ideas and construction know-how to a client looking to build a backwoods paradise on a challenging property. To keep costs low, the landowners supply some materials, bring together a workforce of friends and family and agree to do the entire build in one week.

Dr. Jan Pol has been a practicing veterinarian for more than half his life. In 1981 he and his wife, Diane, opened a vet business out of their home, and over the years it has grown to service more than 19,000 clients.

As do some other vets, Kelleher thinks domesticating wild animals like monkeys is a bad idea, but that feeling doesn't interfere with her taking care of them: "If it will fit through the door, I'll treat it," she says.
Dr. Brady Barr travels to remote regions in search of the most feared creatures in the world.
Dr. Brady Barr, a herpetologist by trade, travels all over the world to study reptiles and other creatures in their native habitats, often risking his life in the process. His mission is two-fold: to collect as much information as possible about the animals he studies and to inform the public about the state of the planet and the risk of extinction many animal species face. And, of course, there's another benefit to all his work: It makes great TV.
