“Nice brief diversion in the heart of the city”

Negros Forests and Ecological Foundation Biodiversity Conservation Center
Ranked #7 of 22 things to do in Bacolod

Reviewed 14 February 2016

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. The place is open from 9AM - 4PM and best time to view the Visayan Leopard Cat is around 3:00PM - 4:00PM (they are nocturnal animals and will come out of hiding early afternoon). This is the best location to get up close and personal to the world's most threatened wildlife. The center is close on Sundays and holidays.

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 bring mosquito-repellants. Must see: owls, wild hogs, deer, and various species of birds.
