Tarsier Conservation Area, Loboc

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.

  • OH MY GOODNESS! these are the cutest monkeys ever and I would love to put one in my pocket! It's really cool to go see them - this is the better place to see than a zoo. There aren't a lot left (as per the staff) since they get eaten by the snakes and birds but they try their best to conserve them. The only place to see Tarsiers in the world. Must see.
  • Loved this place. Went here with my family and we loved it. Difinetly coming back next time we visit Bohol
