It was nice seeing endangered species and rare animals but it would be better if the government gives support to this sanctuary. The place needs more caretakers. the pathwalks were filled with moss anyone can slip. Mosquitoes were everywhere too.

One of the most painful things to see are animals in cages. It borders on animal cruelty and that is also the reason why I am reluctant to visit any "animal showcase" kind of attraction. BUT! This time I make an exception because the goal of the facility is to raise awareness that these beautiful creatures are in peril and... More

It is depressing to see the animals in small and dirty cages. It doesn´t seem to be proper for those wild animals. I would´t go there again.

This was a quaint place to visit, seemingly out of place in the heart of the city. It has mostly bird species and a few animals. It's a small place, but it's good for a few minutes of animal appreciation.

Biodiversity in the heart of the city. Located right next to Capitol Lagoon and Negros Museum, the Negros Forest Ecological Foundation Inc. - Biodiversity Conservation Center is an excellent place to get to know more about the endemic wildlife of the Philippines - particularly that of Negros. If you are in a big group, its better to book in advance.... More

They survive barely from gifts and funds, and that shows. But it also shows a love for nature and specially birds.

It didn't take us 30 minute to go around the place but my 4~year old had fun. There's nothing to do but to view the animals and read the descriptions. No tour guides nor maps.

If you really want value for money native and earth-friendly attraction, this is the place to be. The center showcase a lot of diverse endangered endemic species of fauna and flora. Please do drop by and donate so they can preserve this place. You can sit here and relax and drown a bit of the noise around the city. Do... More

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.
