What a great day. Everything went so well and I had a great time with my oh-so-generous friends who have participated in the whole project with exactly the right spirit and sense of fun. You can see these wonderful people at
There's a few last things to do by way of wrapping up the project (at least this part of it).
I will take all the donations and covert it into US funds to give to the Tapir Preservation Fund. I have asked that they tell me where the money goes (to which project) so you who have been so kind, will know where your money went.
I have created a photo gallery and will add the 'outside-of-Ottawa-people-who-wanted-tapirs' when I get their pictures.
I will put some thought into what I will do for next year's World Tapir Day.
Finally, a really big thanks to all friends who participated in today's events, thanks not only for your patience with my obsessions but also your tolerance and good spirit ... I had a blast!
