I don't often beg for help on my Blog but today I am making an exception.
This is Mali, a beautiful Asian elephant who has spent her entire life, over 36 years in solitary confinement in a tiny enclosure at Manila Zoo, she was taken from her Mum whilst still needing to suckle and put on public display. She has lived in the same enclosure since then with no veterinary care whatsoever. That she has survived this long is amazing, she needs desperately the company of other elephants. Could you live like this for that length of time.
Thanks to lots of hard work mostly by Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick she has a chance but Dr Sheldrick needs support, so if you have a couple of minutes to follow this link I would love you to sign. I have.
If we can garner enough support the authorities will have to re-home her. The good news is that there is a safe home waiting for her in a sanctuary. To see more about this go to the dedicated Free Mali the Elephant Facebook page and see how many folk are getting involved already.
See HERE for more information on Dr Sheldrick and there is much more information on Mali at the top of the petition page. Blogland is a wonderful place, lots of you are on Facebook, or Twitter and could help spread the word, please do, over 2,000 of you read my Blog posts each day, if just half of you follow the link and sign this petition I would be so grateful.
