World Tapir Day 2013

World Tapir Day was established to raise awareness about the only four species of tapir that still exist on the planet today. As large herbivores, tapirs are invariably the first species affected by human encroachment into their territory, and are now classified as endangered. 

The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) are set to celebrate these gentle creatures in a big way this weekend. Meera Sivasothy speaks to Andrew Sebastian of the MNS to find out more.
