This attraction is located very near the Capitol Buildings, Lake and Lagoon and the Negros Museum.

On display here are rare and soon to be extinct birds, snakes, pigs, etc. There are adequate signages for these exhibits.

Entrance fee is 50 pesos for students and seniors, regular fee is 100 pesos.

Sad to see the beautiful birds in cages when they should be out in the wild. Pls go visit and support the foundation for they spread environmental awareness and save/rescue the birds from poachers, etc

It's not bad. But it is really expensive. 100 pesos per person to get in. LOADS of bugs. Put on cream or spray before you go in. Every time we went it was empty. Which is nice. Hard to get away from people in the Philippines. But one time, some creepy guy insisted on following my family around and harassing us. It also is named like a government organization, but then has signs that says it is privately owned, and just sells it's "products" abroad.

I think everyone recognises the importance of these special places in educating filipinos and others about the biodiversity of the Philippines and Negros in particular. The exhibits are well done, but the space is small relative to what they have to exhibit. The entry fee of p100 feels more like a donation than an actual fee given the size of this venue. Actually, I think other similar eco-oriented nature preserves in the Philippines could learn from the way they keep their birds - it was very natural. Also, unless you happen to read about this place, it's well camouflaged from the street given it's jungle-like nature. Worth a trip... Keep in mind, its a densely vegetated area with standing water, so... if mosquitoes love you, they might find you here.

If you're somebody who likes animals, visit this place. Here, you'll find the Visayan Spotted deer, the local wild cat called Maral, and among others. They restore endemic species of Negros Occidental. Your entrance fee/ donation will surely go a long way in this worthy cause.

Located opposite capitol lagoon park, this place is a center for public awareness about Negros endangered species. From the street, the singn is not too attractive and the surroundings look like forest in the city but endangered animals are kept in crampy , dirty cages and the pathway is not well maintained and many insects and mosquitoes bit me along the way. It's too dirty with rubbish thrown in from the street. It's good place but need government support.

A beautiful place to see endangered species only seen in the Region of Negros and Panay island. It is up to each and everyone of us to protect their environment or one day they would be instinct.

A wonderful snapshot of wildlife native to Negros. The animals are well cared for, the setting is lush and the keepers are dedicated. We were fascinated to see the unusual and endangered creatures and encouraged by the conservation work being undertaken. I would definitely recommend a visit if you have an hour to spare.

Bacolod City does not have "a zoo", however, this is the closest thing. Despite the small enclosures, the animals are well-protected and well-fed. This is an opportunity for people, young and old, to witness in a controlled environment, and be educated about the biodiversity of Negros Island and the Philippines. Not everyone can travel to the mountains and forests, even if they are within an hours travel. The variety of wildlife on display and informative vignettes is more than sufficient to give you an idea that the Philippines and Negros are indeed a "hotspot" and in dire need of protecting its natural indigenous wildlife. It could really benefit from your visit and patronage and encouragement for others to visit.

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.
