At the young age of 14, Forrest Galante was the youngest person ever to head an international canoe safari down the Zambezi River. And this is just one of many examples of his early expeditions. Galante is a passionate individual who is driven to educate people about nature and help people save our most valuable resource-our planet. His expertise with wildlife along with his scientific background are assets to biological groups around the world as he typically partners with local groups exploring remote regions. As a conservation expert, he strives to leave a positive, biological impact no matter if he's searching for whale sharks in Africa or Komodo dragons in Indonesia.
Forrest Galante has caught crocodiles, swam with great white sharks, photographed venomous reptiles, outsmarted a startled hippo, dodged an angry panther and had countless other adventures. He pursued a career in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, always focusing on animals close to extinction. His hands-on approach to wildlife, love for the outdoors and extraordinary background eventually led to the development of his own television show, 'Extinct or Alive,' on Animal Planet. The show follows Forrest on expedition as he searchers the earth searching for species believed to be extinct.Forrest Galante
