Extinct or Alive

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 8th, 2018

Keith Hoffman (executive producer of Finding Bigfoot):

This is another series I’m really excited about. Did you know there is no official way to deem an animal extinct?

Spoiler alert…extinct animals are a lot easier to find than Bigfoot.

From press release:

WILDLIFE BIOLOGIST AND ADVENTURER FORREST GALANTE EXPLORES LEADS THAT SUGGEST SPECIES THOUGHT TO BE EXTINCT STILL EXIST

-New Series ‘EXTINCT OR ALIVE’ Premieres JUNE 10 AT 9PM ET/PT-

What if extinct animals weren’t really extinct? The methods used to declare a species extinct are not as fool proof as people might assume. From eyewitness accounts to last known photographs, there is evidence that suggests some of these creatures are still very much alive in the wild. The search is on for wildlife adventurer and biologist Forrest Galante, as he explores the real stories behind animals thought to be gone forever and tries to prove their existence so he can protect them and help them thrive again. EXTINCT OR ALIVE premieres on Animal Planet on Saturday, June 10 at 9PM ET/PT but you can catch a sneak peek episode during Monster Week on June 3 at 10PM ET/PT.


wildlife adventurer and biologist Forrest Galante

The season kicks off with a must see two-hour season premiere, where Forrest explores the magical and mystical jungles of Zanzibar in search of the Zanzibar Leopard, an animal thought to be extinct for over 25 years. It’s a history-making expedition in which Forrest reveals species that have never before been filmed and captures evidence that leads to an unforgettable conclusion. The hunt for other extinct animals will take him trekking through Taiwan for the beautiful Formosan Clouded Leopard, the frozen tundra of Newfoundland for the majestic Newfoundland White Wolf, and to the incredible island of Madagascar to look for any trace of the giant Pachylemur.

From the Florida everglades to remote jungles, the cameras follow Forrest Galante as he meets and listens to locals, some whom claim to be eyewitnesses of animals we thought were no longer in existence. Armed with the information and clues, Forrest sets out to prove the unimaginable, and be the voice for species the world has given up on.

EXTINCT OR ALIVE is produced for Animal Planet by Hot Snakes Media. For Hot Snakes Media, Eric Evangelista, Shannon Evangelista, and Patrick DeLuca are executive producers. For Animal Planet, Keith Hoffman is executive producer and Sarah Russell is producer.
