Happy World Tapir Day from Mango and Bambang!

This is Mango.

Mango Allsorts is a girl good at all sorts of things, not just karate and chess.

This is Bambang.

Bambang is a Malayan Tapir and they, like the three other types of Tapir, are an endangered species.

You can visit a real life Malayan Tapir in London Zoo. Our editorial team went to say hello!

In the wild, tapirs are friendly, if sometimes a little shy, and are extremely important to their ecosystems. Despite their ecological importance, Tapirs are quietly disappearing throughout the world and so World Tapir Day has been set up to help raise awareness. In 2015 the hashtag was trending for five and a half hours thanks to events all over the world! This year we want to smash that record by asking as many people as possible to re-tweet and like our twitter and facebook updates to help spread the word!

To thank you for getting involved we have put together a gorgeous Mango and Bambang gift set including books one and two in the Mango and Bambang series, a gorgeous poster and a set of stickers. To enter, email by May 8th with the subject line We love Tapirs.

Terms and conditions apply.
This competition will also be promoted on social media.
