This ornament commemorates the hippo that has captured everyone’s hearts!
Fiona was born six weeks early on January 24th, 2017. Unsure of her survival, the Cincinnati Zoo team sprung to action, providing her the best possible care. To nearly everyone’s astonishment, Fiona’s health improved drastically and she was able to join her parents in their zoo habitat.
Her story of perseverance has served as inspiration for many, and we are thrilled to be able to help share her story through this unique ornament. The ornament, designed by Rookwood Art Director Mary Guanciale, shows Fiona swimming happily in her habitat.
For each ornament purchased, Rookwood donated a portion of the proceeds to the Cincinnati Zoo Conservation Fund.
