Emilio Aguinaldo, the first Philippine president, and a stone carving made by national hero Jose Rizal.The South Cotabato Community Museum and Rosario “Chat” B. Tantoco Memorial Hall is located at the 3rd Floor of the South Cotabato Gymnasium and Cultural Center along Alunan Avenue. The unique richness of the museum’s collection now stands close to 1,000 pieces and continues to grow by year through borrowed and donated artifacts.
Living on the eastern side of South Cotabato are communities of the indigenous group, the B’laan, who are, likewise, guardians of another treasure: the tarsier. Known in the B’laan vernacular as Mal, this smallest of primates was first reported to be seen in the forests of Mt. Matutum, South Cotabato’s hightest peak, back in 2007. Since then, documenting the tarsier population has been ongoing but early estimates say it could be bigger than the tarsier population in the island of Bohol, where the primate is an icon. In one village in South Cotabato alone, 19 tarsier habitats have been identified so far. Tarsiers are territorial creatures so there are usually only a couple of them living in one habitat. Specifically, the Tarsiers can be found in Barangay Linan, Tupi which has been turned into the Linan Tarsier Conservation Sanctuary, efforts are also underway to create the Tarsier Trail which will allow guests to view the Tarsiers from a safe distance without disturbing them. In the Linan Forrest Park one can experience trekking, camping and sightseeing at Linan’s series of waterfalls.
