Tapirs Original Painting

Tapirs Original Painting


This is a beautiful acrylic painting of a tapir and baby tapir. 


The high quality canvas measures 16x24 inches and comes ready to hang on you wall.


The purple is the colour of protection against animal cruelty, as these beautiful animals are sadly endangered.


Tapirs are endangered due to a combination of factors that are interrelated. One significant factor is habitat loss, caused by deforestation for agriculture, logging, and human settlements.


This loss of habitat deprives tapirs of food, water, and places to breed. Additionally, habitat fragmentation further exacerbates the issue by breaking up large forest areas into smaller patches, isolating tapir populations and limiting their genetic diversity and reproductive success.


Hunting also poses a threat to tapirs, as they are hunted for their meat, hides, and other body parts in certain regions. While hunting may not be the primary cause of their decline, it contributes to their endangerment, particularly in areas already affected by habitat loss and fragmentation.


Human-wildlife conflict arises as human populations expand into tapir habitats. Competition for resources leads to conflicts when tapirs raid crops, prompting retaliation by farmers and further threatening tapir survival.


Climate change indirectly affects tapir populations by altering habitats and disrupting ecosystems. Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns impact vegetation distribution, affecting tapirs' access to food and shelter.

Limited awareness about tapirs and their ecological importance also hampers conservation efforts. Increasing public education and community involvement is crucial for promoting conservation initiatives and mitigating threats to tapir populations.


Conservation efforts focus on habitat conservation, anti-poaching measures, community engagement, and research initiatives to better understand tapirs' behavior and ecological needs. By addressing these threats and implementing conservation strategies, there is hope for the recovery of tapir populations and the preservation of their natural habitats.
