Forrest Galante is synonymous with the natural world, wilderness survival and animal expertise. Growing up in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest harvested a life-long love of nature that put him on his path in life. Galante's deep relationship with nature continued when he moved back to California after political unrest in Zimbabwe forced his family from their safari outfitters.
Galante was the public's favorite participant on Discovery Channel's program 'Naked and Afraid' in the winter of 2013, where he spent 21 demanding days in the jungles of Panama. He was considered the leader by the cast, and not only survived, but thrived. This was the public's first encounter to the adventurist Forrest Galante. He now hosts Animal Planet's top program 'Extinct or Alive,' where he uses his unique set of skills searching for evidence that animals deemed extinct may still be out there. Galante considers this the most detrimental television work he has ever done, as it combines education with conservation and wildlife with adventure. It's his undeniable dedication to the natural aspects of the world we live in that draws us to this impressive person.Forrest Galante
