This study explores the perception of a total of 273 college students from Central Mindanao University (CMU), Philippines and National Chung Hsing University (NCHU), Taiwan towards conservation non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The results of the survey revealed that the majority of the college students from both universities did not remarkably consider NGOs as the main primary mover in biological conservation and signified a neutral stance with regard to their trust to these organizations. CMU students indicated the local people as the most responsible stakeholder in biological conservation. On the other hand, NCHU students pointed out the government as the most dependable institution in biological conservation. NGOs should exert more efforts in involving the college students of the Philippines and Taiwan to improve the students'' participation and perception towards these organizations.
