Karen Paolillo has been studying the Turgwe hippos in Zimbabwe since 1993. In that time 39 hippo calves have been born to the Turgwe hippo mothers. Karen spends an average of six hours a day observing the hippos and has forged a strong relationship with them. She formed the Turgwe Hippo Trust in 1994 in an effort to preserve these endangered beasts.
