About Wild Justice

Out-manned, out-gunned and on the edge, Californian Game Wardens face off against poachers, polluters and drug runners as they battle to keep the state’s wilderness safe.

Wild Justice

From the 1,100 miles of coastal waters to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the 208 California Game Wardens patrol all of the state’s 159,000 square miles.


It’s a beat that’s home to a human population of 36 million, and a habitat and wildlife diversity that is unequalled by any other state. Working alone, or with a canine companion, they work day and night, often patrolling rural areas where back up can be hours away. The wardens face incredible odds as they defend against human threats to the environment, endangered wildlife, and the cultivation of illegal drugs – all in their pursuit of Wild Justice.
