Sponsor a Sloth Tracking Collar
Urban Sloth Project: a long-term investigation into the impacts of habitat disturbance and rainforest urbanization on the behavior of wild sloths in Costa Rica.
Over the next 5 years, we will be tracking and monitoring 32 sloths (16 three-fingered sloths, and 16 two-fingered sloths) using VHF radio collars and compact data loggers. The results will be used to develop effective conservation strategies that will help humans and sloths to peacefully coexist.
Your donation will buy 1 VHF radio-telemetry collar which will be used to track the progress and welfare of sloths living in urbanized areas.
