Philippine Tarsier Wildlife Sanctuary : Corella – Bohol

They’re the world’s smallest primates, and they’re only to be found in the Philippines. After renting a motorcycle at Tagbilaran City I headed east, to Corella, to visit one of the local tarsier sanctuaries.

Though it might look big in the photos, it’s tiny. It’s about the size of my fingers, which – if you consider there are less than 10 of them in a very large sanctuary area – makes them very tricky to find. But, the guy taking care of them at the sanctuary knows their daily schedules, and was able to take us around and track down a few. Seems like they mostly keep to themselves and aren’t that fond of the visiting tourists. Watching them for a few minutes I could understand why they would be in danger of extinction, they seem so fragile.

Overall, it’s a nice little stop along the Bohol tourist path…
