In 1936, Ruth Harkness, a dressmaker from New York, set off to China in search of the rare, elusive giant panda. Her goal was to bring one back alive to New York. She wanted to share the wonder of China's wildlife with the western world. She became the first explorer to do so, and set in motion a public fascination with these creatures that continues 80 years later. Part of "The Brain Scoop" series.
