The fastest sloth wins

October 26, 2018

The Sloth Ironman Games 2018 hosted by the Toucan Rescue Ranch are coming to an end.

Throughout the week the sloths were competing in different games like the Poop-Off Contest. You can watch the past events on Toucan’s Facebook page or their Youtube channel.

Today at 1 p.m. the winners will be announced and celebrated. Until then you still have the opportunity to donate to your favorite sloth. Each dollar equals one point, the sloth with the most points from the donations and the games’ results wins.

The money will be used to help bring the sloths back into the wild. After the games, you can continue to donate to help them reach their goal.

Look out for a longer article about the events in the following days.
