“I’ve known Lucy Cooke for many years and have always enjoyed working with her to spread our love of sloths! Being interviewed for 60 Minutes about Toucan Rescue Ranch’s work is a career highlight, and even though I kept telling people, I wasn’t nervous. I suddenly became nervous when I saw all the camera equipment, lights, umbrellas, monitors, and cables all over my porch! I hope you watch it and fall in love with sloths as I have!”
– Founder and Owner of Toucan Rescue Ranch, Leslie Howle
