“tarsiers where they should be - protected & in their habitat”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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. we only saw a couple of tarsiers - they were hiding due to the rain, but carlito mentioned that within the sanctuary, there were 5 pregnant tarsier mammas in the mix. the forest surrounding the sanctuary is also part of the center (donated by the government) for the protection of the animals.

Wear appropriate shoes as it's slippery when wet....you are in the forest!

The attraction was nice but what makes it the best is that the people in the country are soooo nice!

“Real conservation area with so cute creatures!!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

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 cannot touch them.
It takes about 30 minutes to get here by bus or jeepney from Tagbilaran bus station or by taxi. Quite easy. Those who want to see tarsiers in real nature, should visit this center. In other centers the conditions are just awful and it hurts to see this little cuties suffering..

“When in Bohol”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

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.
