ONCE a vibrant tourist attraction, Zoo Negara and its animals have been hard hit by the pandemic.

Most Malaysians would have visited the national zoo at least once in their lifetime, especially as a child during the holiday season.

Undoubtedly, it would be a great loss if future generations could no longer enjoy this privilege, not only for animal conservation but also for the animals at the zoo.

Jewellery retailer Habib has once again answered the call to help Zoo Negara.

In addition to a previous contribution of RM50,000, Habib is now giving another RM50,000, bringing the total sum to RM100,000.

The contribution was not just proof of the jeweller’s solidarity with the zoo, but was also a call to other corporations and the public to collectively have social responsibility in aiding animal conservation efforts.

Habib also introduced a 24K gold wafer in conjunction with its “Habib for Zoo Negara” campaign launched in December last year.

The limited-edition gold wafers come in six designs of iconic animals found at the zoo – the rhinoceros hornbill, mousedeer, Asian elephant, Malayan tiger, panda and orang utan.

The gold wafers are available at all 28 Habib Jewels stores nationwide. Purchases can be made at the showrooms or online.

The second contribution was presented by Mirsham Habib, youngest son of Habib Group executive chairman Datuk Seri Meer Habib and its executive director Datin Seri Zarida Noordin, to Zoo Negara deputy president Rosly Ahmat at Habib’s head office in Ampang.

Also present was Miss Universe Malaysia 2021 Francisca Luhong.
