Welcome to the official World Tapir Day website
This site contains everything that you need to know about World Tapir Day, which occurs on 27 April every year. Regardless of whether you are a hardcore tapir fan or whether you have only just discovered the world of tapirs, you will find a wide range of information on this site about World Tapir Day.
If you are new to the World Tapir Day community, you may wish to read some of the FAQs on this site to learn about the wider goals of World Tapir Day - they extend far beyond raising awareness of the four extant tapir species in Central and South America and in South East Asia.
The World Tapir Day site isn't just an information resource - it also aims to develop a community around tapir awareness and conservation. Please sign up to the Facebook group and follow World Tapir Day on Twitter and be part of the effort to save tapirs.
There is also the official World Tapir Day store, which has been created to raise funds to help support tapir conservation projects worldwide. All profits made through the shop go towards tapir conservation projects.
