Plastic tapir

Our new plastic tapir is lifelike, soft and squeaky, and has ALMOST the right number of toes.

Beautiful, colorful tapir poster with your donation!

Dear Tapir Fans and Friends,

This absolutely beautiful tapir poster art is yours with a donation of $100.00 or more to the Tapir Preservation Fund's "Club Tapir" program. One hundred is the lucky number, because, as always, 100% of your donation goes directly to the project. TPF pays for wiring fees when money has to be sent out of the US. This is a GREAT opportunity for anyone who wants to support tapir work and get a beautiful poster into the bargain. We pay for shipping the poster to you as well. There are several still available as of January 26, 2008. Just click on the Club Tapir link above! Extra benefits this month: we still have over $400.00 in matching funds from a generous donor. Your donation will be matched and even more money can be sent directly to the Club Tapir winning project! Check it out today!

Wonderful tapir pix from Colombia!

I just received these delightful lowlanad tapir photos with e-mail from Camilo Muños. He wrote:


Hi!!! A long long time ago i visited your site. Anyway i just want to show you (And give you!) this pics i took this december at Pereira's Zoo in Colombia.

I think lots of people might wonder how it feels like to touch a tapir snout. Well it feels just like touching the nose of a horse. The same velvety feeling. Keep the good work!

How much better can it get? :)

Many thanks to you, Camilo! Chevere!!! This is just what I needed today, and I'm probably not the only one who feels this way! I love it!
