Casey Anderson

Specialties: Wildlife Ecologist, Naturalist

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.
