In 1984 a group of concerned citizens started a 'Save our Forest' movement. This grew into the Negros Forest and Ecological Foundation. Since then, NFEFI and teams of volunteers have worked tirelessly to reforest hundreds of hectares, and have established a breeding program of endangered species plus numerous biodiversity conservation, education and research projects. At the Foundation's enclosure alongside the Lagoon in Bacolod City visitors you can learn about NFEFI projects especially the endangered species breeding programs. Visitors can see rare warty pigs, leopard cats, spotted deer, bleeding heart pigeons and many more animals in danger of vanishing forever.
