At age 14, Forrest Galante was the youngest person in history to head a multi-national canoe safari down the Zambezi River. This is just one of the many examples of his early expeditions. Galante is an impassioned individual who is driven to educate people about nature and help people save our most valuable resource-our planet. His hands-on approach with wildlife in conjunction with his scientific background are assets to biological groups around the world as he usually partners with local groups exploring remote regions. As a naturalist, Galante attempts to leave a positive, biological impact no matter if he's searching for fresh-water turtles in Africa or big cats in Thailand.
In December 2013, Forrest Galante spent 21 amazing days in the Panamanian jungle as a participant on Discovery Channel's program 'Naked and Afraid.' The cast swiftly followed his lead as Forrest's skills shone. This was the public's first encounter to the adventurer Forrest Galante. He now hosts Animal Planet's top program 'Extinct or Alive,' where he utilizes his unique skill-set scouring for evidence that animals once declared extinct may still be in the wild. Forrest considers this the most meaningful television work he has ever been a part of, as it pairs education with conservation and wildlife with exploration. It's his undeniable dedication to the wild aspects of the earth we live on that attracts us to this adventourous man.forrest galante discoveries
