Andrew Ucles is a passionate, unique and eccentric Australian wildlife adventurer from Wollongong NSW. He has always had an insatiable curiosity for learning about wild animals. From the age of 7, he has been teaching himself how to interact with some of Australia’s and the world’s most dangerous wildlife barehanded - snakes, rabbits, boar, goats, kangaroos, spiders, foxes, deer, crocodiles... you name it.
One of Australia’s bona fide YouTube stars, Andrew has over 577K subscribers and views of over 104 million. With a Bachelor of Environmental Science, he not only understands the idiosyncrasies of animals and nature but also how fragile nature and its ecosystems can be. Andrew is also part of one of the world’s most elite surveillance and reconnaissance units of the military, ‘The NorForce’ divisions of the Australia Defence Force. His unique skills and abilities have been recognized by the Australian Defence Force and he is currently undertaking training to become a certified Survival Instructor.
Inspired by the likes of Steve Irwin, Donald Schultz, Sir David Attenborough and Bear Grylls, Andrew has travelled throughout the Australian outback, walked Africa’s Zambezi in 30 days and explored the Peruvian Amazon with a local tribe.
In these adventures, the footage captures Andrew striving to understand how to catch animals and bring them to the camera, talking about their behavioural traits showing and teaching the viewer with each catch. It is his respect for nature and the animal kingdom that drives his thirst for knowledge and his mission to share it with others.
Andrew has filmed a number of television features around the world, including ‘Forbidden’ a documentary for Discovery International viewed by 1.6 billion people, German prime time entertainment show, ‘Joko Gegen Klass’, where he challenges the hosts to catch wild animals in the Australian outback, UK science program ‘You Have Been Warned” also on Discovery International and most recently he has been a contestant on the most recent season of Australian Survivor ‘Brains vs Brawn’ 2021 on Network Ten.
He knows it is what he was put here to do and people around the world are becoming equally enthralled by his barehanded escapades, sense of humour and his beloved Michael Jackson dance moves.
