Philippine Tarsier in Cage

Here you can see a tarsier being kept in a cage under very bad conditions near Loboc River. Compare this with the conditions in the Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, where the tarsiers are able to fend for themselves, so there is no need to collect money for their food. Makes me wonder where they buy the insects that are the main food of these shy little and lovable creatures.

Please don't support this way of keeping tarsiers.
