Complete Title: 
Tapirs : status survey and conservation action plan [with Spanish and Portuguese chapters]
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Descended from a long and ancient lineage, tapirs are important tropical forest seed dispersers. However, today, all species of tapirs are threatened to various degrees by habitat destruction and hunting. This action plan was written with wildlife biologists, ecologists, administrators, educators and local conservation officials in mind and is aimed at those countries with tapir populations. It provides a brief natural history of each species and its objective is to aid in their conservation by catalysing conservation action. In addition, it is hoped that the contents of the plan will stimulate further research into this fascinating group of animals.
