Tarsier Conservation Area, Loboc

(3.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Get a close-up view of the smallest, cutest primates at Tarsier Conservation Area, a large private greenery spanning some 3 ha (7.4 ac), which houses tarsiers for public viewing and research. Enormously large eyes will stare back at you as you observe these small, endangered, 8-16 cm (3.5-6.5 in) tall fur balls. The long-tailed creatures cling to their branches, usually waking up from their daily sleep when you arrive. On average, you'll see four or five tarsiers during the 30-minute walk through the wood. These shy nocturnal animals are a mascot of Bohol Island, making the conservation area popular among tourists. You can take photos without flash, but you shouldn't touch the animals or make too much noise.

  • Not very long visit, we walk along a trail where guides tell us where to see the tarsiers. C is really cute and it is difficult to not fall under their spell with their large eyes. Need a good zoom for pictures. The tarsiers tend to put in leaves, not easy for the photo. And of course to the exit through the shop where the little monkey comes in all its forms (keyrings, magnets, postcards...). When we're passing in bohol.

  • The Tarsiers are so cute! It doesn't take long to get round at all but worth visiting if you're nearby.  more »
  • I got to see this as part of the package tour. It is something to see these creatures in their semi-natural habitat. It is also good to see the locals having some kind of jobs as conservatory guides.  more »

  • We just visited this scamming "Tarsier Sanctuary" today and I was so appalled with how some "tourrist guides" behaved just a few meters away from the poor baby monkeys. There were loads of signs saying "SILENCE PLEASE" but a group of guides were soooooooo noisy taking their pictures. Nobody even bothered telling some tourist off when a small group almost grabbed one of the tarsiers. I do think this place should close! Don't recommend this place!
  • Moved to Bilar, a few kilometers northbound from the man-made forest. Adorable primates, average park. The dome enclosure with 4 tarsiers in Sagbayan Peak is much better I think.
  • Duh! The tarsier is not moving and i hate it and im expecting too much that this creatures is bigger, i was surprise that its just look like a rat . hahaha. But so cute in person
  • Overpriced entrance fee and the tour inside the area is very short. Good thing the tarsiers are very adorable. But please don't agitate them because they have suicidal tendencies.
  • Tourist trap founded to make money and exploit tarsiers. Please dont go there. If you want to see and support this endangered species go to Philippines Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella (actually closer to Tagbilaran). I know that it might look like I am paid by Sanctuary, but if you dont believe me, just research. This place is not run by any enviromental foundation, just making money.
