Mali, the elephant in Manila Zoo

by Bam Azores | 30-07-2013 22:47 recommendations 0 recommendations

Who is Vishwamali?  She is a female elephant in the Manila Zoo who is in the news because people are saying that she should be removed from her present condition.  Mali, as she is called, was donated over 30 years ago by the government of SriLanka to the Philippines when she was orphaned at 4 yrs old.  Since then Mali has lived in the Manila Zoo.

Mali has grown to a normal adult elephant size. She is now 36 years old, weighing 7 tons or 14,000 pounds.  She lives alone in an enclosure in the Zoo.

Many people even celebrities are asking that she be moved to better places like a sanctuary for aging elephants in the United States or to a Zoo in Subic owned the Yupangco family.  But right now, the government of Manila said that Mali is not going anywhere. She is staying right where she is in the Manila Zoo.
