Great hidden place

This is one of the best finds in Bacolod. I just wish they had more visitors and more funding. Many unique and near extinct animals and plants are here.

Tired of seeing tall buildings and shop hopping in the city? Why not take a break in a mini-zoo?!!!!

This Center has been around for some time, and the great work they have done in artificial breeding of four species, found only on the island and nowhere else in the world -- e.g. the Negros bleeding-heart pigeon, is definitely worth a visit!

It was nice seeing endangered species and rare animals but it would be better if the government gives support to this sanctuary. The place needs more caretakers. the pathwalks were filled with moss anyone can slip. Mosquitoes were everywhere too.

One of the most painful things to see are animals in cages. It borders on animal cruelty and that is also the reason why I am reluctant to visit any "animal showcase" kind of attraction. BUT! This time I make an exception because the goal of the facility is to raise awareness that these beautiful creatures are in peril and... More

It is depressing to see the animals in small and dirty cages. It doesn´t seem to be proper for those wild animals. I would´t go there again.

This was a quaint place to visit, seemingly out of place in the heart of the city. It has mostly bird species and a few animals. It's a small place, but it's good for a few minutes of animal appreciation.

Biodiversity in the heart of the city. Located right next to Capitol Lagoon and Negros Museum, the Negros Forest Ecological Foundation Inc. - Biodiversity Conservation Center is an excellent place to get to know more about the endemic wildlife of the Philippines - particularly that of Negros. If you are in a big group, its better to book in advance.... More

They survive barely from gifts and funds, and that shows. But it also shows a love for nature and specially birds.
