Since early childhood, animals have played a significant role in Coyote Peterson's life. As he passed through high school and into college, Coyote discovered his second passion in his love for film and television. While a student at The Ohio State University, he studied video production, writing, and directing. His deep admiration for wildlife and video production inspired him to combine the two mediums.
Today, Coyote is proud to be an Emmy Award-winning host on YouTube's Brave Wilderness, where his videos have been viewed over 3.8 billion times worldwide, making Brave Wilderness the largest wildlife brand in the digital space. Coyote has spent the past decade getting up-close with animals to uncover the true stories behind some of our planet's most misunderstood creatures. His passion for wildlife is driven by a desire to educate the world about animals and to foster a future that conserves environments and their species. Forever dedicated to the joys of storytelling, Coyote is constantly honing his craft to ensure audiences of all ages can partake in his animal adventures.
Outside of his onscreen adventures, Coyote has also released five narrative and illustrated books that continue to blend his unique style of entertainment that is educational and informative. His most recent publication, The Beast of Bites, was released September 15, 2020 and published by Little Brown Young Readers, a subdivision of Hachette Books.
