The center of attraction at the Manila Zoo is Ma’ali (Vishwama’ali) more commonly known as Mali, a female Asian elephant that the Sri Lankan government donated in 1977.
Mali spent her early years in Sri Lanka’s Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage after her mother passed away of natural causes. The Sri Lankan government gifted Mali to Philippine First Lady Imelda Marcos in 1977, when Mali was three years old.
Mali was born in 1974 and is currently 48 years old (2022). She is the lone elephant that is living in Manila Zoo.
