The Coolest Naturalist Around!
Forrest Galante is known for his experience with nature conservation, outdoor survival and wildlife expertise. Growing up in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest harvested a love and deep connection with the natural world that seemed to map out his future. Galante's deep involvement with nature continued when he moved back to California after political unrest in Zimbabwe forced his family from their farm and safari outfitters.
Forrest Galante has caught crocodiles, swam with great white sharks, photographed venomous reptiles, outsmarted a charging water buffalo, dodged a cyclone and had countless other adventures. He started out his career in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, always focusing on animals close to extinction. His approach with wildlife, love for the outdoors and one-of-a-kind background has led to the development of his own Animal Planet television program, 'Extinct or Alive.' The show shadows Galante as he treks across the earth searching for creatures believed to be extinct.forrest galante
