Mali was taken as a nursing baby from Sri Lanka in 1977. She's been a captive in Manila Zoo for 35 years; an environment that's unable to fulfill her physical, emotional, and psychological needs.
She's been suffering from isolation and various health issues due to the lack of medical attention given to her.
The Office of the President has already issued a directive ordering to transfer Mali in a sanctuary after a thorough medical check-up. "But despite the fact that PETA has offered to cover the entire cost of the transfer, authorities are stalling PETA's efforts to faciliate Mali's move to a sanctuary" (PETA, 2012).
