This weekend at Mountain Bluff Zoo, Katy and Micah get to help the bongo keeper. The kids have never heard of a bongo before, but they are quickly smitten with the gentle, striped antelope. Sadly, they also learn that the species is almost extinct in the wild. In fact, there are more bongos in zoos than there are in all the forests of Africa. The kids want to help protect these animals. Can Katy and Micah find a way to raise awareness about the endangered bongo?
