THE ORIGINAL TAPIR GALLERY: A Legacy Web Site
The Tapir Gallery was not the first tapir website on the Internet. It was the second.
The first site was made by a student named Jamie Collins a few months before
Sheryl Todd created her home for tapirs on the web in 1996.
The Internet was so new that even Wikipedia would not be born for five more years.
The Tapir Gallery started with this famous face and grew to a resource of
over 600 pages linked to by names such as Encyclopedia Britannica.
From this site, the Tapir Preservation Fund evolved and donated almost
$100,000 to tapir conservation projects in 19 years.
But times change. The Tapir Gallery became a real gallery,
and the Tapir Preservation Fund has a beautiful new home.
These original pages remain online as a testament to our history, and because
you can still find interesting things among the trails of their sometimes-outdated words.
