Naturalist and Conservationist Forrest Galante is Nature's Leading Advocate!

Forrest Galante is synonymous with the natural world, wilderness survival and wildlife expertise. He grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe, which instilled a love and deep connection with the natural world that seemed to map out his future. Galante's deep love with nature grew when he moved back to California after political unrest in Zimbabwe forced the family from their farm and safari operations.

Forrest Galante has caught crocodiles, swam with several species of sharks, photographed venomous reptiles, outsmarted a startled hippo, dodged a cyclone and had countless other adventures. His career started out in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, always focusing on animals on the brink of extinction. His hands-on approach to wildlife, passion for nature and one-of-a-kind background has led to the development of his own Animal Planet television program, 'Extinct or Alive.' The show follows Galante as he travels the earth looking for creatures he believes have incorrectly been deemed extinct.
