“love their big eyes!”

Tarsier Conservation Area
Reviewed June 28, 2013

one's trip to bohol will never be complete without an encounter with the tarsiers. the family was prompted to visit bohol to have a close encounter with these endangered species in their natural habitat. the conservation area afforded us an exciting view of not just one but several tarsiers. since they were nocturnal creatures, we were initially apprehensive that the tarsiers will all be asleep. we were fortunate though to see some awake. hehehe.... love their big eyes. some were asleep and yes...some were sleepy. I felt a bit guilty because I know that our presence in their habitat disturbs their peace and quiet and that somehow we are interrupting their sleep. we took a few pictures with the cute little creatures but made sure we weren't using camera flash. I left the place hoping that my grandchildren and great grandchildren will still have a chance to see these wonderful but endangered creatures.

You could walk around the grounds and the Tarsiers are sitting in the trees out in the open. No cages which is a great way to see them in their natural environment.

this attraction shows the tarsiers in their native setting. the guides are knowlegable and caring toward their charges. we saw one animal only two years old, then, a little farther on, her sixteen year-old mother. one of the few places you can see this endangered species. the stairs and walkway are challenging.

Its nice,you get to see tarsiers in a little secluded forest and their are made trails,they point you to where the tarsiers are,their are 7-10 tarsiers in the place,for those who will visit the place pls respect this endangered creatures by keeping your voice low and turning off the flash in your camera,i heard but im not realy sure but they are known for commiting suicide if shocked and disturbed,and they are nocturnal animals so they will be sleeping when you visit,they will move their head or hands but thats it,enjoy!

The only place where you can see Tarsiers, the sanctuary has guides that lead you through the area so you can see the Tarsiers. My impression was that the animals are very well taken care of, the guides minimize the groups around the animals, and make sure that no one is using a flesh or is in any way disturbing the little creatures. I was surprised how easy it was to see them, and yes, they might be sleeping while you are there, but the cost is so low that you can just come another day to visit. We also hiked the trails around the sanctuary, but they are not very well maintained, and I'm not sure anyone has been hiking there in a long time. We could not get a guide for the hike, the trail was somewhat marked but not used, and I think it needs a lot more work before its a valid attraction, but if you are adventurous, by all means, try the hike, it's real jungle out there.
