    I don’t really understand the necessity to put a tarsier in a cage for the captive breeding. T. syrichta is not still endangered but near threatened, so it would be more appropriate (and cheapier) to protect the forest where it lives to facilitate wild mating, so you will do something also for the forests and philippine biodiversity. In that cage the tarsier will survive maybe for some months and you will preclude to him the possibility to live in his natural habitat. The situation of the Philippine tarsier is not as hopeless as having to do this kind of experiments that are likely to be Unsuccessful (this is what previous studies declare, as you wrote).
