Adopt an Animal

Malayan Tapir Adoption Package

The endangered Malayan Tapir is born with beautiful spots that fade into their signature black and white blocked body as they mature. They have an adapted nose connected to the upper lip that acts as a snorkel in the water and helps to grab leaves and fruits much like an elephant trunk. Threats to these creatures are increasing in numbers leaving around 1,500 left in the wild. By symbolically adopting a tapir today, you can help to ensure generations to come will have the chance to see one in person.
