Saving the Sloths: KSTR Sloth Rehabilitation and Release Program

Baby SlothBy Mary Elizabeth Wallace, KSTR volunteer

For over the past 14 years Kids Saving the Rainforest has been rehabilitating and rereleasing sloths back into the rainforests of Manuel Antonio. It all started with Buddy, a baby three- toed sloth who was brought to us on News Years Day in 2000 by a young neighbor.  Buddy was weaned back to health, taught the important survival skills that his mother would have and was successfully released back into the wild.

In total KSTR has rereleased over 20 three- toed sloths and one two-toed sloth with our Sloth Rehabilitation and Release Program.
