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

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.
