Naturalist and Explorer Forrest is Nature's Top Advocate!

At 14, Forrest Galante was the youngest person ever to head a multi-national canoe safari down the Zambezi River. And this is just one of the many examples of his early expeditions. Galante is truly passionate about education and helping people save our most valuable resource-our planet. His expertise with wildlife and his scientific background are assets to biological groups world-wide as he usually seeks to partner with local groups exploring remote regions. As a conservation expert, Forrest attempts to leave a positive, biological impact no matter if he's searching for whale sharks in Australia or Komodo dragons in Indonesia.

In December 2013, Forrest Galante spent 21 demanding days in the Panamanian jungle as a participant on Discovery Channel's show 'Naked and Afraid.' The cast began to follow his lead as Forrest's skills shone. This was the public's introduction to the adventurist Forrest Galante. He now hosts Animal Planet's hit show 'Extinct or Alive,' where he uses his unique set of skills to search for evidence that animals declared extinct may still be in the wild. Forrest deems this the most detrimental television work he has ever done, as it partners conservation with education and adventure with wildlife. It's his undeniable dedication to the wild aspects of the earth we live on that attracts us to this incredible individual.
