We fund and develop conservation strategies to conserve and protect sloths in the wild


This year Drusillas Park continue to proudly support The Sloth Conservation Foundation (SloCo). 

Please help us raise money for this incredible charity and work with us to prevent the extinction of sloths in the wild. 

Without your help charities like SloCo simply can't survive. Every donation helps, however small. So please dig deep and help us to protect the wildlife we have left before it's too late. 

Sloth populations are in decline throughout South and Central America as they struggle to adapt to the urbanisation of the rainforest. Saving the world’s slowest mammal from extinction now requires innovative and long-term conservation solutions that target both human and sloth populations.

The Sloth Conservation Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation that aims to protect sloths in the wild through research and conservation initiatives. They have developed a range of community-based strategies and programs that provide sustainable ways in which humans and sloths can coexist peacefully.

What work is SloCo doing?

SloCo runs 7 primary conservation programs that help to protect sloths in the wild. These include:

  • 1.    Insulating power lines
  • 2.    Saving sloths by sterilising stray dogs and teaching responsible pet ownership skills to local communities. 
  • 3.    Bridging the gap - building natural or artificial canopy bridges to allow sloths and other wildlife to cross roads safely from above. 
  • 4.    Educating the next generation
  • 5.    Responsible tourism campaigns
  • 6.    Habitat restoration and protection
  • 7.    Research

About the charity

Saving sloths from extinction requires innovative and long-term conservation solutions that provide sustainable ways for sloths to coexist with the people sharing their habitat. We have developed a range of community-based programs that help us to achieve this mission.
