Sponsor a Tapir

By sponsoring a tapir, your money will make a real impact on our work for wildlife and also contributing towards the daily care of our tapirs at the zoo.

Our sponsorship packs make a wonderful gift for animal lovers of any age. Prices start from as little as £35 per year, with three different packs to choose from.

The Brazilian tapir is unmistakable with their snorkel-like prehensile nose! Classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, this species faces threats of habitat destruction and hunting in the wild. We’re home to mother and son pair, Misha and Dexter.

How do I sponsor a tapir?

Please note that the standard animal sponsorship pack is the only option currently available for the tapir. We do have more sponsorship packages available for other animals.

Sponsorships apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your sponsored species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your sponsorship to another species.

Please note that our sponsorship gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
