Chopper Pilot , Outback Wrangler – Matt Wright
Matt Wright is a chopper pilot, animal expert and star of the hit National Geographic series Outback Wrangler.
Raised in the wilds of Papua New Guinea and the Australian Outback, Matt has spent his life in the great outdoors drawn to creatures most of us would run away from. This ultimately led him to the Northern Territory and one of the most dangerous creatures of them all, The Saltwater Crocodile. Matt has spent many years in the Top End collecting crocodile eggs and relocating problem Salties. By Chopper he has seen almost every corner of this great state and is now on a quest to unlock some of these once hidden treasures through his tourism company Outback Floatplane Adventures.
