What
July 3,1997
Britain's Prince Charles arrived in the country aboard the royal yacht Britannica, following the turn over of Hong Kong from British rule to China.

@ Malacanang, Prince Charles, flanked by President Fidel Ramos and his wife, received two tarsiers from a covered basket and briefly held one of them in the palm of his hand before returning the animal to its caretaker.
he turned them over to local group, the Philippine Tarsier Foundation, run by Jesus Alvarez, a former Philippine wildlife official, for care.

Tarsiers are tiny nocturnal primates with huge eyes. They leap around the trees at night catching insects.

The ceremony was intended to show Prince Charles' continuing concern for wildlife conservation as well as the planned signing of an order by Mr. Ramos, declaring the Philippine tarsier a protected specie.
