Three Thomases – Hardwicke, Horsfield and Raffles—have arguably made the earliest contributions to natural history in Singapore. Directly or indirectly, they have been responsible for introducing the first animals of any kind from Singapore to the West. But beyond just “collecting” species and specimens, how did these three men contribute to the larger understanding of nature and natural history in Singapore and beyond? Through the story of the Malayan Tapir, discover this rich natural history that began long before any of the Thomases stepped ashore in Singapore.
