Rizal's Lygers Are Facing Starvation Because of the Pandemic
Animals all over the world are being affected by COVID-19. Elephants in Thailand have been laid off, Avilon Zoo and Malabon Zoo have been asking for donations, and even the Philippine Eagle Center has lost its main source of income. Joining this sad offshoot of the pandemic are the lygers of Rizal.
Lygers are crossbreeds between a male lion and a female tiger. In the Philippines, these black-striped white felines, together with other exotic animals, find sanctuary in a reservation in Pililla, Rizal.
Due to the isolation rules of the pandemic, the Lyger Animal Sanctuary/Tiger Holding Facility has lost most of its source of income and is asking for donations to keep the animals alive. Anyone who donates over P500 will get a Lyger Lover certificate, which may eventually be used to enter the premises for free. Each certificate is valid for four people.
The instructions to donate are simple:
1| Donations may be coursed through GCASH (0917-537-0361); BPI (259-619-2261); or BDO (0020-4801-1237).
2| Send Lyger Animal Sanctuary a direct message on Facebook with the deposit slip.
3| Wait for an acknowledgment and your Lyger Lover certificate.
