About the series The trade in endangered an- imals is the third biggest criminal activity in the world: this series uncovers the peo- ple who make money off of en- dangering wild animals. Steve Galster is a wildlife crime investigator who takes a direct approach to the grisly world of animal crime. In each episode of Crime Scene Wild, Galster sets out to solve a specific wild crime and uses DNA forensic tech- niques to locate the crimi- nals, investigate where the profits are heading, and iden- tify who is at the center of each operation to traffic en- dangered species. Each investigation uses the most up-to-date forensic meth- ods available, and for the first time, scientists can identify endangered species from just a small amount of tissue. Working with local experts, he sets up a sting to catch the crooks in action and uses sophis- ticated secret camera techniques to trace and catch wildlife crimi- nals in the act. Crime Scene Wild is working to fight the trade in endangered animals.
