With your donation we can give a better life and a better chance of release to our resident wildlife.
Baby and young animals are frequently brought in to the wildlife clinic.
The current rehab cages are not sufficiently large or natural enough to provide a learning environment that allows a weaned orphaned sloth a chance to grow into a wild sloth before facing the dangers of the wild on their own. The small rehab cages were designed for short-term residents (those brought in as a result of electrocutions, dog attacks, etc.) not for long-term residents like orphans.
GPS tracking backpacks/collars, are an essential part of this release program. Information provided by these collars will not only help KSTR keep track of the sloths to gauge their health, happiness and safety but will lend valuable information for publications and studies on setting standards for how to raise and release orphaned sloths. GPS technology is constantly developing and this is only the beginning of the kinds of studies we could do to learn more about sloth conservation.
Virtually nothing is known about sloth behavior and ecology. We need to learn more about the sloths in the Manual Antonio region. Please play a part in helping us maintain and keep this species alive.
