A few weeks ago, the plight of our animal friends at Zoo Negara went viral after news broke about the zoo lacking funds to care for the animals.

And now, it seems that another zoo also desperately needs our help to maintain its facility and the upkeep of its animals.

Various uses for the fund

Zoo Melaka is pleading for the public to come forward and donate to the zoo as they are facing financial difficulties following the zoo’s closure due to the Movement Control Order (MCO).

“Due to the cost incurred and no income through ticketing, we would like to ask fellow animal enthusiast to help us during this trying times,” the zoo said in a statement.
