Fiona the hippo, was born six weeks early. She was too small and weak to stand and nurse from her mother, Bibi, so caregivers stepped in to provide critical care. With help from #TeamFiona, the premature hippo grew into a healthy hippo and an ambassador for her species. There is hope for these animals, but people must care enough to want to save them. Seeing amazing creatures like these at a zoo can inspire that kind of powerful connection and make our planet a better place.
