Mali in My School

Melbourne Zoo's most famous Asian Elephant calf, Mali, has made her way out to 55 Victorian schools - in sculpture form as part of Mali in my School, a special 150th Anniversary Event.

Mali in my School is the sister event to Melbourne Zoo's feature event for the 150th birthday, Mali in the City which will see fifty full size fibreglass Mali look-a-like sculptures designed and decorated by some of Australia's renowned artists.
