What i like most in here is that with a small amount of fees for the entrance. You'll be able to get close with the endemic flora and fauna of Negros and nearby islands in the Visayas. The place is worthwhile checking out plus you'll have a personalized guide for all your questions and concerns. Nice place to go around... More

Very nice place to spend an hour. The animals are beautiful, a lot of different species are there - birds, cats, pigs..., although it is always a bit sad to see them in a cage. There is some good information about the animals and the biodiversity in general.

If you are planing to go for a fieldtrip for kids in bacolod city, this foundation is good for kids. for them to learn the importance of nature and why we need to care for it. and you will see different animals that can be seen in Negros Occidental.

See for yourself the rare and very endemic inhabitants of the Negros-Panay Faunal Region. Bleeding Heart Pigeons, Visayan Leopard Cats, and to top them are the Visayan Warty Pigs and Visayan Spotted Deers. But I hoped the place should have been bigger with a larger aviary to let the birds fly at a bigger expanse

We are so glad we came here. We discovered this little oasis in the middle of town because our guide recommended it. It was very enlightening on just how much habitat loss has occurred. At this center they are trying to breed the endangered and critically endangered species with hope of reintroduction. As the information says, this will take a... More

Right next to the main capitol park and building one finds this little patch of greenery with an interesting collection of birds (hornbills, bleeding heart pigeons) and animals (warty pig, deer, leopard cat). For a small fee one can wonder around the pathways looking at the cages that are generally of adequate size (except for the hawks). See animals you... More

This is probably one of the most fascinating places in Bacolod with lots of endangered species and information on them and the ecological topics that lead to the extinction of endemic animals and plants. Highly recommendable, central and doesn't cost a lot. Loved it.

I'm sure they are doing conservation work, but you don't get to see much evidence of it. Mostly it seemed like a zoo. Some very interesting and attractive animals -- mostly birds. Some of the cages seemed small by the standards of Western zoos, but not terrible.

This is the nearest thing that you could get if you want to go to a zoo when visit Bacolod City. The Negros Forests and Ecological Foundation rescues wild animals from poachers and this is where they end up. You will see that the animals are really well taken care of because they are all in perfect shape unlike the... More
