Sarah Chilvers from Peatmoor is supporting the Turgwe Hippo Trust in Zimbabwe by posting out calendars produced to support the work of Karen Paolillo who set up a sanctuary and has been protecting wild hippos for twenty years.
Sarah said, “Karen is an incredible woman who has been trying to ensure hippos in an area where poaching is rife. If it was not for Karen and the trust there probably would not be any hippos left in the Turgwe River. Everyday she has to go on snare patrol, saving other wildlife in the process and is currently protecting around 23 hippos.
“Karen is an expert on hippo behaviour after studying them daily for these past 20 years. If you would like to support the hippos and buy a calendar full of stunning photographs taken by Karen, please click on the link below and that will take you to her website where you can learn more about the great conservation work she does. You can even adopt your own hippo.
“Giving a calendar or adopting a hippo will make wonderful gift, remembered throughout the next year.”
