This place is very well organized. Tarsiers live in freedom area and every morning are found a couple of them to be able to show them to visitors. Local people take care about tarsiers and this is not like a zoo on another place in bohol.

Seeing Tarsiers is one of the things most people that travel to Bohol wish to see. It was fascinating to see the worlds smallest primate but I felt quite sorry for the poor creatures being a spectacle for loud, annoying tourists who cant follow instructions to be quiet despite the stress it causes the animals.

This Sanctuary is the place to meet the tarsiers, wonderful and strange creatures; much better than the other 'conservation' place for these endangered species (we passed by it during our island tour and were distressed to see the number of visitors spilling out of vans and small buses; the poor anti-social tarsiers!). We were impressed by the care and respect accorded to the animals - Yoda's look-alike! - by the Sanctuary personnel. Also by the pedagogical exhibit in the small centre. Suggestion: increase entrance fee and have a well-displayed donation box to keep the Sanctuary going.

This place has been recommended by the Lonely Planet because they say the Tarsiers are cared better and stressed less than in the Loboc center. When visiting, you have to be respectful with them, no talking loud is permitted and photos are allowed only without flash. I think that is undeniable that these tiny animals suffer from some kind of stress when tourists go and see them, but since they are in danger of extinction, I believe that collecting funds by tourists' visits is the only way to save them. Ah, use your GPS to go there or ask, since the only sign you will see is when you'll be in the very same sanctuary.

This sanctuary is just what is says, a place where the tarsiers are kept in the wild habitat and not in cages or other artificial imprisonment. Founded by a Filipino this place permits one to view tarsiers in the wild. No bigger than a clenched fist, the animal is relatively fearsome being carnivorous feeding on insects and even small birds or the offspring of a rival male.

The path may afford places where tarsiers may be seen. As nocturnal animals they are usually asleep. An informative short film is available and should be watched.
