World Tapir Day!

Happy World Tapir Day, Chico and Meena!

How would you like to meet this cheeky chappy this Saturday?

We’re offering one lucky raffle winner the chance to have a close encounter with our two tapirs as part of a fundraising drive for the Lowland Tapir Conservation Initiative.

Throughout Saturday (April 30)  we’ll be raising awareness about the threats the endangered species face in the wild, so make sure you pay a visit to the gazebo located outside the South American paddock, where visitors can discover more.

There’ll also be the two adoption packages up for grabs for each of our Brazilian tapirs, as well as a guess the name of the cuddly tapir competition.

Plus, young visitors can also get crafty making their own tapir mask.

In the meantime, CLICK HERE to find out about the fabulous work of the Lowland Tapir Conservation Initiative.
