Talabong Mangrove Forest and Bird Sanctuary

Why you should check it out:

  • It's the largest remaining mangrove forest in the entire island of Oriental Negros. 

                  [> 400 heactares!Wow.]

  • As early as 1985, it was declared by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources as a "game refuge, wildlife sanctuary, and tourist spot".

  • In 2004, a Sub-Marine Talabong Nursery was created to receive and grow various mangrove species.

    • It is a great site for pictures!
