“Beautiful place that does good work”

Negros Forests and Ecological Foundation Biodiversity Conservation Center
Ranked #4 of 24 things to do in Bacolod
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 August 2017

A place to see endangered species of different kids, ranging from cats to owls. The mission of the place is to preserve these endangered species, which I find to be honorable.

Visited for approximately 1 hour.

+ Unexpectedly spacious enclosures let visitors observe the animals and birds up close and personal
+ Apparent effort made to recreate habitats as closely as possible
+ Sufficiently detailed information about each species (conservation, habitat, which part of Negros island they can be found)
+ Impressive design of the native deer enclosure in particular
+ Animals *seem* lively and well cared for despite no-frills surroundings

- Felt hot, sticky, and ill-ventilated despite open-air environment
- Plenty of insects; my partner was bit multiple times during our visit
- Some dirty pools of stagnant water on the grounds

This is one of the best finds in Bacolod. I just wish they had more visitors and more funding. Many unique and near extinct animals and plants are here.

Tired of seeing tall buildings and shop hopping in the city? Why not take a break in a mini-zoo?!!!!

This Center has been around for some time, and the great work they have done in artificial breeding of four species, found only on the island and nowhere else in the world -- e.g. the Negros bleeding-heart pigeon, is definitely worth a visit!
