I've passed by its gates several times but I have never known the treasures inside the Negros Forests and Ecological Foundation Biodiversity Conservation Center until a friend told me so. I went there on my own and the first thing that greeted me was the sorry state of its office. Nevertheless, they allowed me to wander around. I was amazed... More

Our taxi driver had a hard time finding the place, so be sure to have the intersection ready. It certainly is not a zoo but it is an attempt to preserve some amazing native wildlife and educate the population on the importance of conservation. It was sad seeing the map that showed the shrinking forests on the island over time.... More

good to learn a bit about bio-diversity and endangerment of species, although it was a bit sad to see the animal in the not that big cages it is good to see that some people are busy with those kind of things

Had a great afternoon learning about endemic species. For such a small island, there's a variety of endemic species from birds to deer. A great place that brings awareness to conservation.

This is a great zoo, a real pleasure to visit. You can see the animals native to Negros Island. It is very quiet and very private, I went there solo and felt as if I was alone in the jungle. The enclosures are well made and the animals seem happy. The wild boars are very friendly and kind of cute.... More

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.
