World Tapir Day 2010: The Events
World Tapir Day takes place this Tuesday and in addition to the previously announced fundraising effort Trundle for Tapirs, zoos around the world are hosting tapir-related events and activities. Here's the latest list courtesy of Anthony Long, the driving force behind World Tapir Day:
- Belfast Zoo
- Noah's Ark Zoo (Bristol)
- Trotters World of Animals (Bassenthwaite)
- Galloway Wildlife Conservation Park
- Dudley Zoo
Finally and not entirely zoo-related, the Tapir Caper Project is a fundraising effort by Canadian artist Chris Jackson. Chris is aiming to paint exactly thirty tapir-laden 4"x5" canvases to be sold online, with all money going to the World Land Trust.
