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

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.

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
