Descended from a long and ancient lineage, tapirs are important tropical forest seed dispersers. However, all species are threatened to various degrees by habitat destruction and hunting. Written for wildlife biologists, ecologists, administrators, educators and local conservation officials in countries with tapir populations, its objective is to aid in their conservation by catalyzing conservation action. Providing a brief natural history of each species, it is additionally hoped that the contents of the Plan will stimulate further research into this fascinating group of animals.

Page 161 - A taxon is Endangered when it is not Critically Endangered but is facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild in the near future. Vulnerable (VU) A taxon is Vulnerable when it is not Critically Endangered or Endangered but is facing a high risk of extinction in the wild in the medium-term future.
Page 161 - Critically Endangered (CR) A taxon is Critically Endangered when it is facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild in the immediate future, as defined by any of the following criteria (A to E): A.
Page 161 - Lower Risk when it has been evaluated, does not satisfy the criteria for any of the categories Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable.
Page 161 - Conservation Dependent (cd). Taxa which are the focus of a continuing taxon-specific or habitat-specific conservation programme targeted towards the taxon in question, the cessation of which would result in the taxon qualifying for one of the threatened categories above within a period of five years; 2. Near Threatened (nt). Taxa which do not qualify for Conservation Dependent, but which are close to qualifying for Vulnerable; and 3.
Page 161 - A taxon is Extinct in the wild when it is known only to survive in cultivation, in captivity or as a naturalised population (or populations) well outside the past range. A taxon is presumed extinct in the wild when exhaustive surveys in known and/or expected habitat, at appropriate times (diurnal, seasonal, annual), throughout its historic range have failed to record an individual. Surveys should be over a time frame appropriate to the taxon's life cycle and life form.
