We chose to extend our "countryside tour" to include this tarsier sanctuary instead of the rival places, because this one is a genuine scientific research facility that allows tarsiers to live freely in their natural habitat. There were excellent local guides to show us exactly where the tarsiers were the morning we visited. There were also 4 volunteers from Europe... More

Lito, the popular caretaker of the sanctuary, who is expert in the behavior and almost everything about tarsiers, is not at all greedy to share everything he knows about this marsupial. He even imitates perfectly the sound of a tarsier. Further studies about tarsiers are welcome with permission from the institution. (visited June 2012)

My husband and I really wanted to see tarsiers during our stay in Bohol. The resort we were staying at suggested one place in Loboc but after doing a bit of research we found that place was not entirely ethical, and may actually be causing harm to the tarsiers. This place in comparison is actually concerned about conservation, not just... More

If you visit Bohol you really must go to the tarsier sanctuary and see your distant relatives in their natural habitat. You will only see the males however, since the females are kept in a secluded area where they can give birth and tend to their young. The only down side is that some of the tourists, particularly from other... More

it's really important to support a legit operation like this vs the others who are not in the business of protecting the animals. it was great to see REAL conservation in the Philippines. we were lucky enough to meet the founder (carlito) too while we were there! the staff was great and showed us exactly where the tarsiers were napping....

It is the only real conservation center in Bohol. Good place with real forest and natural conditions for these little harmless creatures. The staff is very friendly, shows you every tarsier that was found in the morning sleeping on some branch. We were shown 3 of them and they were quite close, we made good pictures. But of course, you... More

Do check out the Sanctuary when in Bohol. Not sure if they are open at night but since these creatures are nocturnal they are very much asleep during the day.

It's fun to see amazing creatures, just like the Philippine tarsier, it's totally worth visiting while you are in Bohol.

Amazing place! Student guides search out the various night time resting places of some of the tiny Tarsiers each morning in this reserve and quietly take you to see them sleeping in the tropical forest. There may be hope for these endangered animals after all. We met one of the researchers that has helped set up the sanctuary at the... More
