In the Everglades’ Big Cypress Swamp, more than 1,600 animals roam wild on thousands of acres in a park run by the Seminole tribe of Florida. Best described as controlled chaos, the Billie Swamp Safari offers visitors face-to-face encounters with ostriches, American bison, African elan, wild alligators, venomous snakes, wild hogs, raccoons, and virtually every other animal found near the swamp. The goal is to immerse visitors in the wild, in accordance with the Seminoles’ love of harmony with nature, but sometimes these close encounters can mean trouble for people and wildlife. It’s up to the park’s director, Ed Woods, and his tough team of self-described Swamp Men to patrol the land, relocate animals from dangerous situations, and rescue animals in need.
Ride along with Ed and his staff as they work to maintain safety at the Safari. They are considered among the best wild animal wranglers, and each day brings new tests of their skills with bears, alligators, wild hogs, and panthers that inhabit the Everglades. Ed’s dedicated staff includes Paul, expert alligator catcher; Cory, animal trapper; and newbies Matt, Lawrence, and Shea. All share a passion for wildlife and a willingness to get down and dirty, as they face new swamp adventures every day.
