Fancy tickling a tapir?!

Don’t forget we’re celebrating World Tapir Day this weekend by offering visitors a chance to give DZG’s Meena and Chico a tickle.

We’re raising money for World Land Trust by holding a raffle to win a close encounter with our Brazilian tapirs.

Keepers will be selling raffle tickets outside the South American paddock today and tomorrow and will be drawing a winner out each day at 3pm.

Visitors can also win a cuddly tapir toy by correctly guessing its name as well as learning more about the endangered species and the threats they face in the wild during an additional talk at 11.30am both days.
