The Sloth Becomes a National Symbol of Costa Rica: Did you hear?! This July, the Costa Rican government has announced that both the two-fingered and three-fingered sloths are now national symbols, and as a wildlife rescue center that specializes in sloths, we couldn’t be more excited!
The government has unanimously approved a project that will declare sloths as a national symbol. The aim is that this will promote the conservation of the species as well as their habitats. With this step, our hope is that fewer sloths will suffer from accidents we see every day, including logging, electrocutions, and habitat loss. The fewer sloths we have to save, the better.
This is definitely one small step for the sloth, one big step for conservation in Costa Rica!
What can you do to celebrate this new achievement of the sloth? Well, by visiting them at our sanctuary, of course!
Our Educational Walks are the perfect day out for all ages. With all our tours you get to see up close and learn about sloths, as well as the diverse wildlife of Costa Rica. You will learn about what you can do to preserve wildlife and the importance of conservation. Also, you don’t only get the chance to meet all the rescued wildlife that lives at the Ranch, but also learn about their incredible stories!
We even have a tour focused on sloths, and for you big sloth fans, we highly recommend it. In it, you get to see the sloths go about their morning routine while you enjoy a delicious cup of coffee and pastries!
Additionally, running throughout the month of July, we will be offering a 15% discount on all on-site and virtual tours!
