To some, the ocean is a place of peace and calm tranquility, but don't expect to see anything calm or tranquil in Animal Planet's latest offering, Ocean Warriors.

The six-part docuseries, led by executive producers Robert Redford and Paul Allen, follows activists, scientists and other Warriors as they police the world's oceans for poachers and others looking to harm Mother Earth. Considering the ocean covers over three fifths of the globe, this is no small feat. The series will stop off in many locations including Tanzania, Thailand and Antarctica bringing to justice illegal shark fishers, poachers, traffickers and more outlawed criminals.
