If you haven't been to anything like it, then it is worth a try. There is a guided tour of the main facility every 30 minutes which covers a brief discussion about how the crocodiles are bred, etc. After the short tour is an option for you to continue exploring their mini-zoo unguided. There are a few caged animals in... More

Those poor crocs spend their whole life in a plastic container until they are used for handbag and meat production( or at least I guess so as the restaurant there serves croc meat) the oldest ones are still tiny at 3 years and then they have some really old ones. They also had a cat locked in a cage?! They... More

It's a crocodile farm, with some of the endangered species that you can only see in Palawan. I love the Maynah bird saying Pangit.

Very educational. They save crocodiles and breed them so they don't go extinct. However, the crocs seem to be crowded on one pen / cage. I think it's better to allot bigger cages for them. Take note that the crocodile meat the locals are selling didn't come from this conservation center. It's from Rizal, Luzon.

Palawan is such a very beautiful place and a well known tourist destination in the Philippines. Part of your itinerary is to visit the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center. You'll have the chance to see the deadly big crocodiles; the baby crocodile and the 17 feet long crocodile and its other native wildlife endangered and endemic animals. The 8... More

It was purporting to be a conservation/rescue centre yet during the tour it seemed as though the place was farming crocodiles? To add, after you pass the farm section, visitors have the opportunity to take photos with a baby crocodile they can hold which seemed to be tranqualized and has tape over its mouth. It just did not make sense... More

Now this is the part I don't understand: they save crocodiles and breed them so they don't go extinct, but they serve crocodile sisig to tourists and travelers. What kind of conservation center is that?
