The Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio has a very popular Nile hippopotamus who is about to turn 3 years old, and the zoo is turning the occasion into a fundraising event for Australian wildlife. Fiona doesn’t want presents, they say, they want people to buy T-shirts that will benefit the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund. The shirts feature a koala and a kangaroo giving Fiona a hug; the proceeds will be delivered to Zoos Victoria. It’s just one example of similar efforts large and small all over the world. Fiona didn’t pose for photographers until after she finished her birthday cake. (John Minchillo/AP)
