Plot Synopsis

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. On Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, Animal Planet premiered a one-hour sneak-peek episode of EXTINCT OR ALIVE, with the official series debut the following week on Sunday, June 10 at 9pm. In the series opener, "Zanzibar Leopard," Forrest sets out on a history-making expedition in Zanzibar, revealing species that have never before been filmed and capturing evidence that leads to an unforgettable conclusion on the Zanzibar Leopard, an animal that was declared extinct 25 years ago.
