In 1980 John and Terese Hart began a rigorous study of the Okapi which led to a pivotal position with the Wildlife Conservation Society. John received both his Doctorate degree and Master's degree from Michigan State University; and his Bachelor's degree from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.
