Hero of the Tarsiers

I am so delighted that finally my article Hero of the Tarsiers, featuring the tarsier man Carlito Pizarras, has been published in Highlights, a children’s magazine, last March 2014.  It was a very long wait since I submitted  it early 2011, but I can tell you it was worth it!

If you are here in the States, you can find the magazine at any public library. Just recently, I tried to google it and I found out that you can read the full article. Isn’t that so cool? Everything is at your fingertips as long as you have an internet connection.

Here’s the link - http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Hero+of+the+Tarsiers%3A+carlito+Pizarras+stopped+hunting+them+and…-a0360205878

Now you can share this article to any child you know.  I think even children should be educated about the tarsiers and how Carlito Pizarras have played a vital role in saving them.

Experience Day Trekking

Day trekking allows you to explore the tarsier inhabited forest with the added benefit of exercise and breathtaking views.

During noon, it could be hot and humid, thus we encourage trekkers to bring water and even extra-shit. The ground when wet, as it always is especially if you trek before noon, is very slippery thus flipflops certainly will not work.

Since its a forest, trekkers might encounter animals such as snakes thus be very careful with your steps.

There are signages too, but very few thus trekkers must be accompanied by a guide during the entire hike.

You take as may photos as you like. These photos are taken by Polish volunteer, Marta Patyra during the trekking and camping of the foundation volunteers.
