Meet Squiggle, the Rescued Baby Mongoose


Karen Paolillo at Turgwe Hippo Trust is raising this young mongoose orphan. Karen is such a fine nanny to the wild things here in Zimbabwe and probably one of the few women in the world to have pet a wild wart hog or to touch a baby baboon in his mother’s arms.


While life with Squiggle involves taking her for short walks in the bush and meeting all her needs for food and companionship, the needs of the animals on a wider scale are daunting. With periods of very little rainfall, grasses are not expected to hold out in June and July and this means that supplemental food will need to be brought in on massive trucks again to feed the animals. The Harmony Fund is already helping to meet some of the monthly costs here to sustain the trust and keep their anti-poaching wardens on patrol, but now we’re also gearing up for this coming challenge that will determine the very survival of hippos, baboons, elephants and other forms of wildlife. Stay tuned for more details in our next newsletter.
