FAREWELL MALI

FAREWELL MALI. A boy sits beside a replica of Vishwa Ma'ali, popularly known as "Mali," the country's lone elephant who died at the age of 49 at the Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden on Tuesday (Nov. 28, 2023). Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna, in a press briefing on Wednesday (Nov. 29, 2023), raised the possibility of subjecting the animal's remains to taxidermy and preserving her bones as an attraction to visitors.
