Dr. Brady Barr is a reptile specialist and television personality. In over 15 years, he has traveled to more than 80 countries for National Geographic Television
to host over 100 wildlife documentaries – more than anyone in National Geographic's history. In the process, he has worked with just about every animal imaginable – from crocodiles, alligators, and snakes to bears, sharks, lions, hippos, and more. Among his many notable achievements, Brady was the first person to ever capture and study all 23 species of crocodilians in the wild.
He's driven by a desire to get to know crocodiles and other species in their natural habitat so that we might best know how to save them in the wild (about one third of all crocodilians are endangered). The author of multiple children's books about reptiles, Brady is also the star of the educational XBOX game Dangerous Encounters
, a collaboration with Microsoft. On the research front, Brady has participated in studies with leading scientists throughout the world including his ongoing research, supported by the National Geographic Society
, into conservation of the American crocodile in Costa Rica, and his dietary study of alligators in the Florida Everglades.
