The Mambukal Resort in Barangay Minoyan, Murcia, Negros Occidental has bats as tourist attraction. There resort has 3 species of bats – the Philippine Flying Fox (Philippine Giant Fruit Bat), the Philippine bare-backed fruit bat, and the Little Golden-mantled Flying Fox, which is already endangered.

Bats are included in the list of animals protected by Republic Act 9147 (Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act).[16] The provincial government-owned Mambukal Resort inaugurated its "Butterfly Garden," on December, 2007.
