Forrest Galante is known for his experience with the natural world, wilderness survival and animal expertise. During his youth living in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest developed a love and deep connection with nature that put him on his path in life. After political unrest forced his family to move back to California, Forrest's love with the outdoors deepened.

Over the course of his life, Forrest Galante has caught crocodiles, swam with several species of sharks, photographed venomous snakes, outsmarted a charging water buffalo, dodged a cyclone and had countless other adventures. His career started out in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, always focusing on animals staring down extinction. His approach to wildlife, passion for the outdoors and exceptional background eventually led to the development of his own television program, 'Extinct or Alive,' on Animal Planet. The show follows Galante as he treks across the world searching for creatures he believes have inaccurately been deemed extinct.
