Forrest Galante is synonymous with the natural world, wilderness survival and wildlife expertise. During his youth living in Harare, Zimbabwe, Forrest developed a love and deep connection with nature and animals that put him on his path in life. Galante's deep relationship with nature grew when he moved back to California after political unrest in Zimbabwe forced the family from their farm and safari operations.
In December 2013, Galante spent 21 relentless days in the Panamanian jungle as a participant on Discovery Channel's show 'Naked and Afraid.' He was considered the leader of the group 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 hit show 'Extinct or Alive,' where he utilizes his unique skill-set scouring for evidence that animals once declared extinct may still be out there. Galante deems this the most detrimental television work he has ever done, as it combines conservation with education and adventure with nature. It's his undeniable dedication to the natural aspects of the world we live in that attracts us to this incredible man.forrest galante discoveries
