Give the Tapir something to savor-sponsor a Tapir today!

The Minnesota Zoo is very excited about the birth of our Malayan tapir calf on Saturday January 6.

Malayan tapirs are endangered—in fact, there are fewer tapirs than tigers in the wild.  That makes our recent addition particularly important to their species.  She is the Zoo’s third tapir calf.

You can help us care for the tapirs with a gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation today! 

Your gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation will help us provide the resources necessary for the Zoo to maintain the best possible care for all of our amazing animals, while also continuing our conservation efforts here at home and around the world.

Your $55 sponsorship package includes:

  • A 12” tapir plush toy

  • A personalized sponsorship certificate

Your $100 sponsorship package also includes:

  • Animal Homes, a children’s book about animals and habitats by Judy Allen and Simon Mendez.
