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...More

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.

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!

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.

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.
