About the Saving Sloths Together Short Documentary
This film lays out our nationwide program that provides successful rewilding for orphaned and injured sloths in Costa Rica. To accomplish this, we offer medical care, rehabilitation, and the nurturing of skills sloths need to ensure a successful release back into the wild.
Why do Sloths Need Help?
Sloths are highly successful arboreal species. Growing human interactions and development in Costa Rica have made it difficult for them to thrive. Sloths are negatively affected as humans move further into the forests and coastlines – Couple this with growing social media trends; sloths face more threats to their survival than ever before.
How Can We Save Sloths Together?
We can learn, protect, and preserve the sloth for generations. To do so, environmental education, reforestation initiatives, and activism across the globe are at the center of keeping the sloth thriving. Support Toucan Rescue Ranch’s Saving Sloths Together program and get involved by donating and educating others about sloths!
