Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has asked President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, arguably the most eligible bachelor in the Philippines, out for dinner should he ever find himself in the sunny city of Los Angeles, California. But romance isn’t the agenda for the buxom celebrity’s invitation, as she wants to talk to Pres. Aquino about how they can transfer Mali, the 39-year-old elephant in Manila Zoo, to an animal sanctuary.

"[S]hould you find yourself in Los Angeles, I'd love to take you to dinner and talk more about how we can help Mali," Pamela was quoted as saying in an article on ABS-CBNNews.com. "Thank you for taking a strong, serious stance on her behalf by issuing a directive to consider moving her to a sanctuary. In a world filled with political self-interest, your character and integrity are inspiring.”

Pamela is a supporter of the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), an organization that has been steadfastly campaigning for Mali’s relocation.

"In her current environment, Mali is cruelly denied socialization, stimulation, room to explore, and everything else that is natural and important to her," PETA had said in a statement. "She endures intense confinement, loneliness, boredom, and isolation in an area a tiny fraction of the size of her natural habitat. Decades without proper veterinary care have left her with painful and potentially fatal foot problems, which the zoo is still failing to treat."

"Gandhi once famously said, 'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated,'” Pamela remarked. “I know that the Philippines is a great nation.”
