About the Saving Sloths Together Program
In 2017, Toucan Rescue Ranch and The Sloth Institute joined forces to form Saving Sloths Together, a Costa Rica-wide project to rescue, rehabilitate, and rewild sloths in need. Sloths are rescued for various reasons, including electrocution from powerlines, car accidents, dog attacks, and human encroachment, such as deforestation and the illegal pet trade. Often, orphans suffer from injuries and the loss of their mothers from such incidents.
This is when the Saving Sloths Together program takes action. Together, we rescue hurt sloths and give them a second chance at life to release them back into the wild once they “graduate” from the rehabilitation and release program.
