The tarsiers at the Philippine Tarsiers Sanctuary near Corella live in an environment that's close to their natural habitat. Besides, there is quite a lot of information on the conservation of these super cool animals. Together with a guide you will walk the slippery slopes to spot tarsiers in the 'wild'. It's a nice place to visit, it takes about... More

As far as I know this is the best place to see tarsier in the Philippines and it seems well managed. Quiet place. as natural habitat as it can be... pre briefing by staff about them but people skipped it. They are so small though that you can hardly see them so when you find one you find yourself reaching... More

This lovely little sanctuary is located in Corella, Bohol. It is not to be mixed up with the more touristy tarsier 'sanctuary' in Loboc which most tours packages visit. After researching different tarsier locations, we decided this was the most ethical. The staff member who took us on a tour was very knowledgeable and the little forest was quiet and... More

This tiny animal only comes out at night and eats only bugs that hurt agriculture, and should be preserved. The 30-45 minute visit gives a good lesson in understanding how a species can end up in trouble, and what can be done to save them. Highly suggested as a life lesson for our young people who will inherit this earth.... More

Entrance fee per person is Php60. I must say it's a big amount considering the pathway is not cemented and no proper signage of which way to go. The collections or the money should go to where it is due and that is for the conservation of the Philippine Tarsiers. Let's give the visitors the convenience and attractions that they... More

The best reason to go here is to see up close and personal the amazingly cute tarsier in its natural habitat. One cannot rave over the hilly forest that serves as its wildlife sanctuary. The tarsier si the star here.

The sanctuary is set off the main road in an area of jungle protecting the little animals. A good system of guides that take you very quietly to different locations in the jungle area where you can see the little animals. They are nocturnal so in the day not active and just sit there and stare at you with big... More

Wildlife Sanctuary is doing a really good job to preserve one of the smallest primates on the world. We learned a lot of their work. It is worth to visit!

On average people see 3-5 tarsiers here, we saw 5 so were very lucky. There is a small museum which could be improved by giving some more detailed information on their conservation programme. The visit will only take about 30 mins but we really enjoyed it. Make sure you wear lots of insect repellant, you will be in a damp... More
