Nai Conservation

Nai Conservation is a group of young professionals from diverse backgrounds working on research and education projects to conserve tapir populations and their habitat in Costa Rica.

Utilizing the expertise of each of it’s members, Nai Conservation works on research and conservation programs to generate scientific information, empower local communities, educate, and create public awareness around the tapir to ensure its long term survival.

We are teamed up with other conservation projects inside Costa Rica Wildlife Foundation, a Costa Rican organization that aims to integrate local conservation initiatives and provide support for scientists to develop research, communication, and education.

About Us
Why Tapirs?


We hold scientific projects on population ecology, genetics, health and human dimensions.

Through our research, we aim to provide evidence to improve the conservation action and wildlife management.



With our conservation action, we aim to impact policy, and decision making to mitigate the threats that tapirs are facing and improve its conservation status.



Through our Salva-Dantas Program and Capacity Building Workshops we aim to involve local communities and encourage the conservation heroes of the future



We want to make tapirs famous, through our Communication Program we share our passion and engage people around the globe to our Tapir Movement.
