Why Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center is special ?

Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center formerly known as the Crocodile Farm and Nature Park, aims to preserve and conduct further research studies on endangered species of crocodiles. The Philippine Crocodile is currently included in the endangered species list and the conservation center is making ways to increase the number of the species. One of the structures is a ""hospital"" for sick and disabled crocodiles. It also intends to make good use of the raw materials derived from crocodile skin. The place also maintains a mini-zoo featuring some of Palawan's endemic animals, under the supervision and management of DENR-PAWB.

What to explore at Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center?

The eight-acre facility has room for up to 4,000 crocodiles. There is a building with an exhibit area that displays crocodile skeletons. An audio-visual presentation on the center’s program may also be viewed here. There is a room where newly born baby crocodiles are kept. They may be petted with supervision from the animal handlers. The older crocodiles that are below five feet in length are kept right behind the building, while the crocodiles that are more than five feet in length are kept outside in an open pond. Visitors may view them, take photographs, and feed them from a bridge.

There is also a small wildlife park at the back of the facility. Monkeys, birds, and other animals roam the zoo grounds freely. Some endangered endemic species can be seen here. The PWRCC also runs a souvenir shop on the premises, where they sell products made from crocodile skin and other gift items.

How to get to Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center?

Palawan Wildlife Rescue is located south of the Puerto Princesa city center. One has to take a ride of about 30 minutes to the rural south of the city and is a few minutes from the Iwahig Penal Farm. One may hire a jeepney or multicab to bring them to the park which is far off for tricycles to reach. City tour packages regularly include the park in their itinerary.

We were a bit disappointed as we thought it was primarily a conservation centre but is actually more of a crocodile farm. None of the crocs are released into the wild but the bigs ones see their lives out here and the little ones go on to croc farms and eventually onto people's plates. The other animals, which are rescued and released if well enough, look a bit neglected. It was cool seeing a bear cat (like the one that poos out expensive coffee in Indonesia). My kids loved it.

Very informative tour. Hold on to your kids especially when touring the hatching area as some baby crocodiles can jump high and escape their tubs. (This happened during our tour)

An exciting wildlife experience with the crocs, myna, etc. The tour of the cro farm was a different experience because you will see the different stages of a cros's life. We were fortunate that we saw Surigao, one of the biggest crocs in captivity, who emerged from the pond. The guides are very articulate and clearly gave instructions for the safety of the guests. The Center is undergoing reconstruction and when completed will show a big pond of crocs. The new center manager is very dedicated to rehabilitate the center. I
