A piece of Africa in the Philippines

Safari park, which previously belonged to former leader Marcos, challenged by financial strains as well as poaching.

    Forty years ago, former President Ferdinand Marcos shipped over 100 animals from Kenya in Africa to western Philippines with the vision of setting up a private zoo on the island of Calauit.

    Decades on, the park and its staff are facing several challenges, including poaching.

    Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Calauit.
