Witness wildlife’s top line of defense in action!

 

CONCORD, NH -- It’s here at last!  The long-awaited television show produced for Animal Planet showcasing the work of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Law Enforcement and Biological staff is slated to premiere at 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 5, 2017.

 

“The force is strong on Animal Planet, with two of the network’s finest law enforcement series premiering this quarter. Audiences will be introduced to New Hampshire’s Conservation Officers in an all-new series NORTH WOODS LAW: NEW HAMPSHIRE,” touted Animal Planet’s announcement.

 

“We are pleased at the potential the New Hampshire series has for raising public awareness of the complexities of wildlife enforcement and management,” and said Colonel Kevin Jordan, Chief of NH Fish and Game Law Enforcement. “Audiences will be able to see firsthand how Fish and Game staff work together every day to protect these resources for all of us.  Enjoy the show!”

 

The “docu-series” is expected to draw audiences from around the nation and world.  The Animal Planet roll-out announcement describes the energy and depth of the show, which film crews have been working on in New Hampshire for nearly a year:

 

From the White Mountains of the Northeast, to the rocky shores of the Atlantic Ocean, all-new series NORTH WOODS LAW: NEW HAMPSHIRE features the Conservation Officers and biologists of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, who work tirelessly to preserve and protect the natural resources of the Granite State. New Hampshire’s wild and rugged landscape makes the state a premiere destination for outdoorsmen and women, and makes the work of Conservation Officers and other Fish and Game staff diverse and demanding.

 

Conservation Officers are tasked with enforcing all laws, rules and regulations pertaining to the state's fish, wildlife, off-road recreational vehicles and marine resources, and they prosecute all of their own cases involving offenders of wildlife law. Whether they’re assisting biologists in managing the state’s wildlife, patrolling backcountry roads during hunting season or conducting search and rescue operations on windswept mountains and roaring rivers, every day presents a new challenge in the Live Free or Die state.

 

NORTH WOODS LAW: NEW HAMPSHIRE is produced for Animal Planet by Engel Entertainment, where Steven Engel and Ben Shank serve as executive producers. For Animal Planet, Patrick Keegan serves as supervising producer with Meredith Russell as associate producer.  See a sneak peek at www.wildnh.com/law-enforcement/tv.html.
