Tarsier Sanctuary

Tarsier, the world's smallest primate found only in the Philippines particularly in Visayas.

We went all the way to Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, Bohol to see Tarsiers in their natural habitat.

There are tarsiers displayed on other tourist spots in Bohol but what better way to see them than in the wild.
We weren't able to see many tarsiers because it was raining when we went their and we didn't went up further but  for me, it was worth going there and getting wet


Tourist can only go inside the sanctuary with a guide, besides the guides already know where the exact location of the tarsiers. How do they know? In the morning before the first tour, they go and search the search to find  where are the tarsiers, since tarsiers are nocturnal(they sleep at daytime), they stay on the same spot the whole day. Some would change places/ trees but not far to where they were first seen.

Picture taking is allowed but no flash. Camera flashes can cause blindness to the tarsiers.

Information on the sanctuary and tarsiers are available at the information .
