A National Geographic expert will accompany each departure to share insights and a rare behind-the-scenes perspective. Listed below are some of the experts and the departure date(s) they will be joining.
The host of Nat Geo WILD’s Expedition Wild and America the Wild, naturalist Casey Anderson was nicknamed the “animal magnet” while growing up in Montana. In 2002, Casey rescued an abandoned grizzly bear cub and dedicated his life to raising Brutus to be
an ambassador for his wild grizzly cousins. Casey built Brutus a sanctuary which became the Montana Grizzly Encounter, a bear rescue and education facility. Together, they have been featured in the National Geographic Channel’s Expedition Grizzly and in numerous educational videos, films, television shows, and commercials—even in a game for X-Box Kinect. When not on set, they spend their days at the rescue center helping educate the public about wildlife conservation. A passionate advocate for wildlife as well as an entertaining presenter, Casey will share insights from his many adventures including those in Alaska, where he studied the grizzly population of Kodiak Island.
