A company is donating 2,000 kilograms of chicken to help feed the animals at Manila Zoo amid the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

In a press release, Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. confirmed that they pledged the assistance to the zoo. They will deliver 200 kilograms of chicken per week.

"When we heard that the animals inside the zoo were about to starve, we did not hesitate," said Bounty president Ronald Mascariñas.

"All of us grew up going to Manila Zoo and now is the time to give back to it," he added.

The zoo has been a frequent stop of field trips for students. It has been closed since last year for rehabilitation.

Manila's Public Recreation Bureau Director Pio Morabe thanked Bounty for the donation.

"Sana huwag po nating kalimutan ang ating mga zoo animals sa ganitong krisis dahil pati sila ay apektado rin," he said.

Zoos are not yet allowed to operate under the modified enhanced community quarantine.

Both Malabon Zoo and Avilon Zoo in Rizal have asked the public for support so that they can provide food for their animals.
