Tapirback Books

Tapirback Books Logo (c) 1996 to 2006 by Sheryl Todd, beautified for the Web in 2005 by Julie Marquardt.

The book I'm writing about Hudson and Joy is 1,000 pages in draft. Yikes! Check out this link for progress and interesting stories.


tapirback.com is three things: The web site of The Tapir Preservation Fund (TPF), the online store that supports TPF, and Sheryl Todd's personal web site.

When I created my site in 1996, I bought a domain and called it "tapirback.com." It was a pun made from tapirs and books ("paperback"). I put up some pictures and stories about my experience raising tapirs, and I called that part of my site "The Tapir Gallery." Tapir fans began to visit who wanted to help save these endangered animals. I also met people in the field doing the actual work of tapir conservation. In 1998 I founded The Tapir Preservation Fund to help bring these two groups together. I simply expanded The Tapir Gallery as TPF's fledgling home on the web. If you want, you can read more about the history of The Tapir Gallery and its unusual store. The links below lead to tapir stores, my stores, blogs, photos, and Facebook pages, as well as into the corridors of my own web gallery. Thank you for visiting!

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
only after the last river has been poisoned,
only after the last fish has been caught,
only then will you find that money can not be eaten.
