Forrest Galante is synonymous with nature conservation, outdoor survival and animal expertise. Growing up in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest harvested a love and deep connection with nature that set him on his path in life. After political unrest forced his family to move back to California, Forrest's involvement with nature grew.
Forrest Galante has caught crocodiles, swam with several species of sharks, photographed venomous snakes, outsmarted a startled hippo, dodged an angry panther and had countless other adventures. He pursued a career in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, which focuses on animals close to extinction. His approach to wildlife, passion for the outdoors and extraordinary background has led to the development of his own television program, 'Extinct or Alive,' on Animal Planet. The show follows Forrest on expedition as he searchers the world searching for animals believed to be extinct.Forrest Galante
