Over the past decades, their population has decreased by half due to habitat loss and hunting. This species was added to the Red List by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s.

That’s why the birth of any Malayan tapir is worth celebrating. And recently, the Chester Zoo has got that luck. An incredibly rare and extremely adorable Malayan tapir was born here.

“It’s wonderful to hear the pitter-patter of tiny, spotty Malayan tapir feet again for only the second time ever in the zoo’s long history. Mum Margery is ever so good with the baby. She’s very attentive but also gives him chance to explore and find his feet,” Sarah Roffe, the zoo’s team manager told in a statement.
