By Visiting Sanctuary

By visiting the Philippine Tarsier Foundation, Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, you are already supporting the Tarsier Conservation Efforts of the foundation as all fees goes to this cause.

Entrance fee is P50 pesos per person. With that you get a guided tour inside the Tarsier sleeping site where the tarsiers rest during the day. It’s a free environment and is only enclosed to keep predators like house cats away, but the tarsiers can jump out of it during the night to hunt for food.

STRICTLY: No flashes, Keep voice extremely low as much as possible, do not touch the animal, you can take as many pictures as you like but don’t stay to long in one tarsier-5 mins per tarsier will do; do not litter or leave anything, do not take anything, only the guide can interact with the tarsier. We open 9:00 am and close at 4pm this is for the tarsiers and other wildlife inhaiting the sanctuary.

WHAT TO EXPECT: It’s a natural environment, thus the trail will be muddy when raining (umbrellas are no use when raining too, so just prepare rain coat), thick growth of bushes and trees, some trails are slippery, some a little up hill, some a little narrow. Just be careful.

All in all, enjoy the forest and enjoy nature.

YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO: Watch the 15 minute video about the foundation, the sanctuary and the tarsiers before or after the tour. Write your feedback on the foundation’s Trip Advisor page; just click the link on the right side. It would be great if you’d subscribe on the tarsier foundation’s website as well.

Have fun!
