Saving sloths in the wild through research and conservation initiatives.
In order to develop and implement any good conservation strategy, a solid scientific knowledge of the sloth’s ecological requirements is necessary. Read our scientific research papers published in open-access peer-reviewed journals here.
Accredited members of the SFN actively engage in environmentally friendly practices to support the protection of sloths and help to educate tourists to be partners in conservation.

Proceeds from our Sloth Shop go towards supporting our conservation projects!
Based on the belief that every single person has the ability to make a positive difference, we are focused on inspiring individuals to care about sloths, to protect the rainforest ecosystem and to safeguard a future for the planet that we all share.
Sloth populations are in decline throughout South and Central America as they struggle to adapt to the urbanisation of the rainforest. Saving these incredible animals from extinction now 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.
