I visited here today on a Bohol day tour, tarsiers were one of the reasons bringing me to Bohol being an animals lover. I had heard there was 2 sanctuaries one being a bit more ethical that the other, I was assured by our tour guide they were in the wild at this sanctuary so we trusted it was ethical.... More

We had pleasant surprise when we visited this tarsier sanctuary. Actually never knew such creatures exist, until saw them. Mix of bat,owl rat sloth n monkeys tail. Perhaps inspiration for many alien movie characters. If your on bohol you should not miss visiting this place and watching tarsier up close.

Simple conservation place with a few tarsiers. That's it. Nice for a short stopover. Nice to see what nature has to offer.

It was fun to see the small tersiers on our way to chocolate hills.They are very private animals and are active only at night. During the day are supposed to rest/ sleep, so it is not allowed to touch them and make noises. They feed on worms, insects and once were a free animals, now sadly endangered.

We stopped here on the way back from chocolate hills. There was a small admission charge, I can't remember how much. The tarsiers are inside a large natural enclosure. We had a guide show us around and point out the location of the animals. Without him we would not have seen them, they are so small. We saw about 10... More

They are so cute and adorable. They are clingy and just still as a statue as if they know you are taking their picture. At Php 60.00 it is worth the visit. It might be a short walking show and you might probably see below 10 tarsiers but a lot of tourist from all over the world came to see... More

The Tarsiers are so cute! It doesn't take long to get round at all but worth visiting if you're nearby.

I got to see this as part of the package tour. It is something to see these creatures in their semi-natural habitat. It is also good to see the locals having some kind of jobs as conservatory guides.
