Aside from its name being associated with progress and economic growth, Negros Occidental was once known as an island teeming with vast forests and wildlife. Sadly, agriculture and logging also flourished and left the province with only four percent of forest from the once 95% of green trees.
In 1984, a group of concerned citizens established a "Save our Forest" movement that aims to protect the remaining forest space and endemic animals in the region. Since then, the advocacy grew into what is now the Negro ...
