Forrest Galante is synonymous with the natural world, wilderness survival and wildlife expertise. During his youth living in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest developed a life-long love of nature that seemed to map out his future. Galante's deep relationship with nature grew when he moved back to California after political unrest in Zimbabwe forced his family from their farm and safari outfitters.
Forrest Galante has caught anacondas, swam with several species of sharks, photographed venomous snakes, outsmarted a startled hippo, dodged an angry panther and had countless other adventures. His career started out in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, which focuses on animals close to extinction. His approach with wildlife, love 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 shadows Forrest on expedition as he searchers the earth looking for creatures believed to be extinct.forrest galante discoveries
