What benefits do you get to Tarsier?
They are the smallest primates "prosimian". They live in the Phillipines, are on the IUCN Red List of endangered animals. The most benefical thing I can think of is they eat lots of insects. I'm sure there are many other benefits we have because of these small creatures, but that is the first one that jumped out at me, while doing this research. They eat all size and shapes of insects, and in a hot moist climate like the PI, that is wonderfully handy.
There are at least ten different species of Tarsier throughout the world. Of these species, the Philippine tarsier is near threatened and has been since the 1960's, the Horsfield's tarsier is vulnerable and was listed as such in 2008, the Dian's tarsier is vulnerable, the Peleng tarsier is endangered, the Sangihe tarsier is endangered, the Spectral tarsier is threatened, and the Siau Island tarsier is critically endangered.
