The Baird’s Tapir Survival Alliance has joined forces
to conserve tapirs in Mesoamerica
The Baird’s tapir is the largest native mammal in Mexico and Central America and has been roaming
on earth since millions of years. Yet, it is silently disappearing at a dramatic rate.
This calls for a coordinated action across the Mesoamerican region to apply conservation actions at the local level in order to have a meaningful impact at the global scale.
Our vision is to ensure that Central American tapir populations are healthy, stable and connected throughout their distribution in wild and productive landscapes.
