Abstract:

National Geographic conservationist and chopper pilot Matt Wright was born for life of action and adventure. Raised in the wilds of Far North Queensland, Papua New Guinea and outback Australia, as a child he would catch deadly snakes for fun or lizards and turtles for show and tell at school. From his early years working in the outback to a short stint in the army, Matt's life reads like a boy's own adventure story, but he was always one to go his own way - sometimes making up the rules as he went along. Today he is the star of his own international television show on National Geographic, a renowned outback adventurer and a wrangler of deadly animals. Giant saltwater crocodiles are a big part of Matt's story but jumping in his chopper and rounding up wild buffalo, brumbies and Brahman cattle keep him pretty busy too!
