Animal Planet is trying to help save an endangered species with the three-part special, Battleground: Rhino Wars.

The series, which was filmed in South Africa, features current and former members of the U.S. Special Ops as they work to fight poachers from killing rhinos for their lucrative horns.

"We're problem solvers," the group's leader Craig "Saw" tells "We travel internationally and solve problems that can't be [dealt with] diplomatically or militarily or through any other means. We're a last ditch effort and this crisis is really at that level."
