" In a barren pen, Mali spends her days pacing the same concrete area over and over again. Transferred from Sri Lanka to the Manila Zoo when she was just a baby, Mali has lived a life of deprivation since 1977. In the wild, Mali would spend her days in the company of her herd—which she'd never leave—foraging, bathing and playing in rivers, and roaming vast territories. Now Mali has the chance to live the life that she can currently only dream of."
There are many people who are trying to get Mali transferred to the elephant paradise that BLES is. We can all help by speaking up and signing a petition in her name - we are all she has. Check out the web page dedicated to her rescue: http://www.freemali.com/
