    Marah Land, Gaza's only zoo, is in danger of closing down.

    During Israel's three-week war with Gaza in 2009, almost 90 per cent of the animals in the impoverished zoo were killed.

    Since then, securing food, medicine and care for the few that survived has been a daily struggle for the zookeepers.

    So, along with its fatigued and war-stricken animals, the zoo is now up for sale.
