Slothy Sunday: Things are looking up

August 30, 2020

Happy Sunday from The Tico Times and Toucan Rescue Ranch!

The sloth in the featured photo, nicknamed Anise, was found as a six-month old by a river near Turrialba Volcano. She has the nickname “Volcano Girl” due to being covered in ash when she first arrived at Toucan Rescue Ranch.

Like Anise, we’ve all been through some rough times — for many of us, 2020 has been especially bad. We hope that, even on the worst days, you find a reason to smile and be hopeful for the future.
