Tarsier Conservation Area, Loboc

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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.

  • Short visit for only 60 pesos per person. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable- ask them questions, don't just blow through taking pictures! And like other people have said, be respectful: don't use flash, don't get too close - just be quiet and enjoy observing them!
  • The Tarsiers are really cute, and the entrance is just 60 pesos. But I am not entirely sure that the animals are treated very well,because some of the people working there always tried to wake them up so that they would look good on the photos...
  • Tarsiers are common on being sensitive to many people so that's why actually taking pictures of them is being prohibited especially with the flash on the camera or other gadgets. They might be tired or just sleeping but these species are really active at night. ^_^ They look like Little monkey :)
  • not worth it. The place is a scam. They specifically place the tarsiers a few meters apart from each other. Very unnatural. Nothing much to see. When I was there, there were only about 4-5 tarsiers present. Very harsh conditions for these animals. I thought we were going to the official Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella but the driver went the other way. I soon found out that these "tours" dont go to Corella but to this Loboc one. I guess money is all that matters huh?
  • I didn`t find any recreations other than tarsier viewing. Price could have been lower if that`s the case, although tarsiers are cute. Entrance fee is 60pesos.
