The Negros Forests and Ecological Foundation (NFEFI), which has worked tirelessly for 25 years to protect and conserve the environment and wildlife of Negros, is calling for more funds to continue its vital work..

Recent estimates place forest cover on the island around 50,110 hectares.. Curio, 2002.. ), or less than 4% of its original cover (.. Turner et al 2001.. Today, remaining forest cover on the island of Negros exists mainly in the Northern Negros Natural Park (NNNP), Mt.. Kanlaon Natural Park (MKNP) and Mt.. Tainis – lake Balinsasayaw, while a few very limited forest fragments can be found in some other areas..

    Descriptive info: The zoo, in association with NFEFI and PBCFI, has mounted a series of biodiversity surveys in Negros Occidental and Oriental to ascertain if the bird is still present.. Even though there are only occasional sightings of this rare bird, we are optimistic there are still breeding pairs in the wild.. BirdLife International estimates there are only 300 Bleeding Heart Pigeons left in Negros, so their future here is uncertain, said Mr.. Simpson.. The problem is the drastic loss of lowland forest areas where the birds thrive, hence the  ...   s Biodiversity Conservation Center in Bacolod City has successfully hatched eight of these rare birds and they can be seen at the NFEFI compound by the Provincial Lagoon.. Said NFEFI s Curator, Dr.. Joanne Justo These captive-bred pigeons could be released into the wild once protected areas have been established.. Bristol Zoo, which last year celebrated its 175th anniversary, is working with organizations like NFEFI and PBCFI to develop local conservation areas in various parts of the province where rare birds and other endangered animals can be released..
