Reintroduction of Tapirs

Last Friday, January 20th, three new tapir individuals arrived at REGUA coming from two different zoos in São Paulo State! We couldn’t be happier with their arrival! The tapir programme began in 2017, led by Refauna group, and there are already 6 baby tapirs born in the wild, here in the Reserve! This programme has been very successful thanks to the support of several partner organisations such as Asa Socioambiental, Projeto Guapiaçu, Bio Parque Rio, Zoo Rio Preto and Parque Ecologico São Carlos.

Long live the tapirs!
