Tiny Tarsiers The Jungle Of Bohol Philippines

The most sustainable (or at least acceptable) place in the Philippines for a close encounter with the tarsiers is the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary* in Corella, Bohol.

We got to know Mr. Carlito, the founder and heart of the sanctuary, whos investing all his time and money to enlarge the protected area for the little primates, spread awareness around them and is even able to breed them. In the sanctuary a "guide" leads you through a little forest, pointing out where the tiny fellas sleep. Please be aware, that tarsiers are very sensitive animals, so keep a proper distance and dont disturb them. We saw many tourists almost touching the primates with their phones, and unfortunately, the guides didnt interfere. Let us create memories that are enjoyable for us as travellers and the animals
