The white tiger was given its name in honor of the current first lady, Liza Araneta Marcos, Tangco claimed in the video. He also extended an invitation for everyone to see the new tigers at the Malabon Zoo.

“We believe that giving a first hard nature to children, to our youth, to our school children is very important na makita nila eye-to-eye contact po with nature. Sinasabi nila, a thousand documentaries, is equivalent to one eye-to-eye contact with Ma’am Liza over here,” Tangco said in the video.

The Malabon Zoo owner also introduced the “largest” tiger in the Philippines named “Tiger Bongbong,” which was named after President Bongbong Marcos Jr, based on the Facebook post of the Philippine star.

Recently, a new fundraising campaign was started to support the feeding and care of the animals at a defunct zoo in Malabon City. On May 19, the Facebook group “Donation and Fundraising—Philippines” published a request for contributions from the public for the Malabon Zoo to help with the feeding and upkeep of its residents.

The aforementioned zoo reopened to the general public on November 7, 2021. The 31-year-old zoo is well-known for the wild creatures that have the names of notable people, including actors, politicians, and celebrities.
