On today’s episode we have two stories about rare animals and how their stories tie into human history. First is the story of Pere David’s Deer, an odd looking deer native to China that nearly went extinct more than once that is flourishing today thanks to an English Duke. Then we have the story of Sir Harry Johnston and the twentieth century discovery of the animal that bears his name: Okapi Johnstoni.
