Tarsier Conservation Area, Loboc

3.3
#1 of 13 in Wildlife in Bohol Island
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.

  • Good place to see tarsiers. They're not "caged" but fenced off in a large area. Be quiet and don't wake them up. Staff will show you the locations of the little guys. They have daily "spotters" who find the tarsiers every morning. 60 peso to enter, worth it to stop by Tour is 5-10min, very quick. They have restrooms.
  • Should really handle better the noisy tourist here. You know who those noisy tourist are..everyone does. Tarsier really need a quiet place and still with so many warning signs, those people doesn't understand!!
  • It was definitely interesting to see those cute guys for real not just in pictures and books. When you arrive at he place after paying a fee, they would have an orientation on what to do during the tour and fun facts about the tarsiers. It is hard to spot them since they blend with the trees and they are really small. But there are people to point you where they are and since they are nocturnal they were sleeping then, but we we're lucky I guess to see one open it's eyes, totally adorable. There is also a souvenir shop just as you finished seeing them, with lots of tarsier souvenir from shirts to bags to purses, even postcards if you want to say hi from your family back home.
  • A great experience to see them in person..so cute and tiny.Good to see them while their eyes were open.☺️
  • My trip to Bohol was a good experience to see live but sleeping Tarsier- my first time to see although I was born and raised on the Philippines. It is greatly appreciated for the effort for the conservation of the Tarsier.
