Lonely Mali was stolen from her close-knit loving family in Sri Lanka while she was still nursing. For almost 40 YEARS Mali has been confined to a barren concrete enclosure and denied the company of other elephants, which is essential to her emotional and mental well being.

Although a group of animal activists are currently helping the animals in the squalid Manila Zoo by feeding them bread and fruits, Mali desperately needs to be moved to a reputable sanctuary in Thailand. On Mar 30, 2015, the 500 acre Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary (BLES) in Thailand agreed to accept Mali in her retirement. Lonely elephants have been known to hold their own tail for comfort and security, something Mali has done since she was stolen from her loving mother, aunts and cousins in the wild.
Sadly, The Manila Zoo has denied Mali all medical treatment. A reputable international veterinarian has determined that she already suffers from potentially fatal cracked nails and foot pads, which are open to infection, and overgrown cuticles. Since the Manila Zoo was alerted to Mali's problems, the zoo has not brought in a single elephant expert to help her.
