Forrest Galante is synonymous with the natural world, outdoor survival and animal expertise. During his youth living in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest developed a deep love and strong connection with nature that seemed to map out his future. Galante's deep love with nature became deeper when he moved back to California after political unrest in Zimbabwe forced the family from their farm and safari outfitters.
Galante was the public's favorite participant on Discovery Channel's show 'Naked and Afraid' in the winter of 2013, where he spent 21 demanding days in the jungles of Panama. The cast began to follow his lead as Galante's skills set him apart. This was the public's first encounter to the naturalist Forrest Galante. He now hosts Animal Planet's top show 'Extinct or Alive,' where he utilizes his unique set of skills to search for evidence that animals deemed extinct may still be alive. Galante considers this the most meaningful television work he has ever done, as it pairs education with conservation and exploration with nature. It's his undeniable dedication to the wild parts of the planet we live on that draws us to this adventourous individual.forrest galante
