Lolongs younger brother.

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?

Simple park which focused on the Crocs. Some crocs were terrifyingly big but the smaller ones were actually very easy to hold. We had a photo opportunity with one of the baby crocs.

This was included in a tour package and is where you go to see the crocodiles. If you want you can hold a baby croc and have your picture taken or they will use your camera as well. No pressure to buy the photos from the photographer but for just a few bucks it was worth it!

I saw the crocodile and wildlife as well. It's not usual for me because I've seen it in Vietnam during my tour.

Not well maintained, animals look neglected. Very disappointing experience, but it is probably the only chance you will have to see native wildlife as it has pretty much disappeared outside. I would much rather see animals in their natural habitat.
