A Tapir Gallery Conservation Profile:


Patrícia Medici lives and works in Brazil. As a conservation biologist at The Ecological Research Institute (Instituto de Pesquisas Ecologicas [IPÊ]), she works with both tapirs and black lion tamarins near her home town of São Paulo. This photo was taken in front of someone else's home - April the Tapir at the Belize Zoo - in 1997, when Patrícia visited Belize to attend a conference. Much of her time is spent doing field work in Morro do Diabo State Park, where she and her team have now collared eight lowland tapirs.
