  • (1888PressRelease) August 20, 2016 - Join the Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR) in raising funds for our rescued adult and orphaned sloths! This fundraiser is to help us raise money to build a sloth pre-release enclosure at our release site in Sarapiqui, Costa Rica. The funds raised will allow us to release orphaned and rehabilitated sloths admitted to our rescue center.

    We need to raise $7,000 to build a Pre-Release Sloth Enclosure for our Sloth Release Program: https://www.razoo.com/us/story/Backinthetrees

    Reintroducing sloths into the wild is no easy task. When teaching a captive raised sloth how to be wild, we must first teach them the necessary behaviors to survive. In order to accomplish this, we need a setting where they are provided a safe environment, but also introduced to their future home - the rainforest. A pre-release enclosure facilitates this introduction by giving sloths more space to forage, allows researchers to provide enrichment, and exposes the sloths to elements of the jungle. With this enclosure we will be able to see our sloths demonstrate foraging skills and other important postures and behaviors. Finally, this will allow us to slowly introduce the sloth into its natural world!
    (The pre-release enclosure will be 8 x 8 x 6 meters and will cost a total of $7,000.)
