The name says Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center, but once inside, you will realize that the Center is more of a crocodile farm than any other wildlife. In fact, the tour inside will begin with the story of the giant croc skin mounted on the wall.
This crocodile skin from one of the longest crocs ever captured in the Philippines.
The story then continued with all the so many crocodiles caged in very tiny spaces.
I felt sad seeing all these crocs packed in enclosures that needed maintenance.
I was hoping to see other wildlife endemic to the Philippines, but was left disappointed. Well, I got to see the caged birds.
And walked through flooded pathways.
I had been to a number of wildlife rescue centers around the world, and this one is in the bottom of my list. That is, certainly, sad.
