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.

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 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.
