Sloth Elementary


This video explains our Sloth Release Program, a joint project with The Sloth Institute Costa Rica, called Saving Sloths Together. TRR sloths go through a graduation process on their way to the wild. They must first go through pre-school, elementary school, high school, and then graduate to university. After university, they are on their own #backinthewild!

Sloth Preschool


If you loved our Sloth Elementary video, then you are going to love Sloth Preschool! Sloth Preschool at Toucan Rescue Ranch is every baby sloths’ new home when they first arrive at the rescue center. These sloths are found abandoned, injured, or otherwise without mom and brought to TRR to be raised for eventual release. Follow along with the daily life of these 2-4-month-old sloths as they sleep, eat, play and cuddle!

Don’t forget to support their journey back to the wild by checking out the 2019 Sloth Ironman Campaign or ordering one of this year’s exclusive #Sloth Ironman t-shirts! Tomorrow is the last day to order.
