In a Facebook post, the Rizal-based zoo and conservation foundation made their dire situation known. Just like all other tourist spots in the country, Avilon Zoo in Rodriguez (formerly Montalban) adhered to strict COVID-19 quarantine measures and shut down in time for the coronavirus lockdown.
“While under quarantine, we in AVILON ZOO exert our best effort to provide for the needs and welfare of all life under our care. We must admit though that it is quite challenging to maintain good quality animal care and veterinary services in this extraordinary time. We need your support,” the post read.
