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.

  • 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.
  • Trasier, if you found them, nice to see this little monkey. Be quiet for not stress them.
  • At Daylight, tarsiers mostly are sleeping so its kinda boring but if you happen to see one, well this will make your day.
  • The only place in the world where the world's smallest monkey is found and available to see up close, in the wild, very protected, at a most reasonable price.
  • do not visit! tarsiers are kept in insufficient conditions and often die of stress from the visitors and poor care.
