The conservation is not big at all & I think they had about 12 nodding hanging in banana trees. Very cute and smaller than I expected. Hope they will keep up the good work!

First time for me to see an amazing creature, Tarsier. I learned that Tarsier doesn't like noise. According to our guide, Tarsiers kill themselves by holding up their breath and banging their head on the branches of trees. They are primate and extinct.

we had only cellphone to take picture this time, and we couldn't get closer to Tasier because they protected them, so I couldn't get nice picture.

Staff seem a bit dis-interested in their jobs. The sites where the tarsiers are housed are sectioned off making picture taking quite difficult. Trash was easy to find on the ground. A bit disappointing.
