About Us

Our Conservation Captive Breeding Program has seen many successes in breeding Negros Island’s Big Five in Conservation importance, namely: Visayan Spotted Deer, Visayan Warty Pig, Visayan Tarictic Hornbill, Rufous-Headed Hornbill, and the Negros Bleeding Heart Pigeon. In line with our in-situ program, our reforestation and forest protection program has been successful with over 1,000 hectares of forest growth seen in the North Negros Natural Park. Our community projects have led to ex-loggers becoming ambassadors for our forests

ASAP Species That We Work On

What We Do

Negros Island is among the world’s top conservation areas, with most of our endemic fauna being functionally extinct. Talarak Foundation is Noah’s Ark for our key endemic species, having many successes in our captive breeding program. Our dream is to bring these animals home, back into their natural habitat. Working with communities, local government units, and non-profit organizations, we can secure a safe place for these animals, and ensure viable populations for future generations.

Where We Work

Negros Island is nestled in the centre of the Visayan group of islands, in the Philippines. We have three national parks, namely the North Negros Natural Park, Balinsasayao Twin Lakes Natural Park, and the Mount Kanlaon Natural Park.
