At the young age of 14, Galante was the youngest person ever to head a multi-national canoe safari down the Zambezi River. This is just one of the many examples of his early expeditions. Galante is a passionate person who is driven to educate people about nature and help 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 to explore remote regions. As a naturalist, Forrest attempts to leave a positive, biological impact no matter if he's searching for whale sharks in Africa or Komodo dragons in Indonesia.
Over the course of his life, 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. He pursued a career in high-risk wildlife biology fieldwork, which focuses on animals on the brink of extinction. His approach with wildlife, love for the outdoors and exceptional background eventually led to the development of his own Animal Planet television program, 'Extinct or Alive.' The show follows Forrest on expedition as he searchers the globe searching for creatures believed to be extinct.forrest galante discoveries
