The sanctuary is not affected by the earthquake. However spotting these little creatures really depends heavily on luck. Though the spotter manage to find them, they still prefer to hide behind branches and leaves. Do note that the sanctuary only open at 0900hrs.

Excellent opportunity to see tarsiers in their natural habitat. Guides stationed around the attraction were very helpful and pointed out the little creatures as we walked along. There was a lookout station a few minutes walk away from the entrance. Spotted a handful of tarsiers hugging the branches as they slept. It drizzled while we were visiting, so the sanctuary... More

This is the true Tarsier Conservation Centre please do not visit the bogus 'attraction' in Loboc as that is a privately owned money making fake, they do not breed Tarsiers there. The guides at this centre are knowledgeable and provide a wealth of information regarding this curious little animal. The Tarsiers sleep in a large compound during the day but... More

I enjoyed this sanctuary in Corella very much. You go into the sanctuary and see the tarsiers sleeping in the trees. Sometimes they wake up, but tarsiers are nocturnal so make an effort to be quiet! Entrance fee is practicly nothing at 50 pesos, so be a good tourist and make a donation. 1000 pesos should be a minimum in... More

We travel Very extensively and have been fortunate enough to see many of the great wonders of the world, this was amongst the best of them. We took a bus (30mins) to Carmel (15P each) and walked the 4km to the Sanctuary entrance. We entered and bought tickets (50P each) - they do cokes there 20P each - ice cold!... More

This is the only tarsier area that I visited while I was in Bohol, but based on what I've heard, not every place has the animals' best interests at heart. It is clear that this place does. They genuinely care about the tarsiers' welfare and protection. This is definitely a place where you can see the animals in a natural,... More

I have respect for this sanctuary because unlike others, they abide by their mission. They truly care about and want to protect the delicate tarsiers. The proof is in the pudding. They are on the forefront for research about habitat, behavior, etc. There are no cages, instead the 10-or-so tarsiers they have are free to roam within their huge natural... More

I've been to Bohol many times and when I saw this, I've been proud. This sanctuary is just a simple habitat that was created to provide a more natural home for these endangered species. So natural that one has to sharpen their eyesight to find one. The staff here preserves these nocturnal creatures. They let their visitors spot tarsiers in... More
