Welcome to The Sloth Institute, located in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, dedicated to helping one of the most charismatic animals in Costa Rica, the sloth. The Sloth Institute focuses on the research, education and release of hand-raised sloths back to the rainforest. The Sloth Institute also collaborates with Kids Saving the Rainforest and Toucan Rescue Ranch to release their hand-raised orphaned sloths.
Today we share with you the news that Monster, everyone’s beloved three fingered sloth, has passed away to the forces of nature. Read more here.
Help us finish our WiSH lab which we will be dedicating to Monster.
