CONSERVATIONIST PAULA KAHUMBU ON CNN'S AFRICAN VOICES
After the 2004 Asian tsunami, she rescued a baby hippo that formed an unusual bond with a giant tortoise. The pair received global media attention and encouraged Kahumbu to think of innovative ways to save species and reduce the growing human–wildlife conflict.
