Lovely little wildlife centre with native Philippine animals you are unlikely to see in the wild. Extremely important educationally, as sometimes locals are unaware of the endangered status of some of the species living here. Not glamorous, but it's cheap, and definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

This is an oasis in the center of town. Shaded by old towering trees (I wonder if Ayala Land will chop them all down!), these endangered animals are being taken cared of by passionate individuals. Though small, the amount of detail and the amount of international sponsors speaks volumes of the foundation. It's clean and cozy. I just hope there... More

After looking at the reviews here in tripadvisor, my family and I decided to go to Negros Forest. Even though some reviews mentioned that the place was small, my family and I really enjoyed our visit. This was the first time i've seen an owl in the PH. You can also see extraordinary species of birds in Negros Forest. Of... More

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
