House to Deliberate Mali the Elephant—We Need You There!

Remember Mali, the elephant from Manila Zoo? A petition from PETA Asia-Pacific has been recently sealed when it reached 50,000 signatures. The petition was then endorsed to the representatives of the Philippine government. 

The House of Congress has heard the petition and will deliberate on the fate of this lonely elephant on June. Details of the event are copied from the email I've received earlier:

Dear Maria Marilyn,

On January 30, Mali's plight will be heard on the Congress floor.

The Committee on Natural Resources will deliberate three resolutions that aim to look into the welfare of Mali and urge the relevant authorities to expedite her transfer. 
Your attendance is needed to show support for these important resolutions! Please don't ignore this e-mail and think other people will help—Mali needs everyone who is able to attend this hearing to do so. 

Date:    Wednesday, January 30
Time:    1:30 p.m.
Location:    RSVP for meeting place

If you're able to attend this event, please RSVP to Ms. Edwina  Baier at or by texting 0929-379-4016.

Mali is perhaps the world's saddest elephant. In the wild, elephants roam territories of up to 50 kilometers every day, but Mali is confined to a barren, concrete enclosure at the Manila Zoo, which itself covers an area of only 0.055 square kilometers. She has lived this way, totally alone, every day for more than three decades.

A sanctuary would be able to provide Mali with vast spaces to roam, ponds to bathe in, fresh vegetation, foraging opportunities, and the company of many other elephants.

Thank you in advance for your support.

For Mali,

The PETA Philippines Team
