The Board

Dr. Rebecca Cliffe

Executive Director and Founder

Rebecca has worked extensively in the field with sloths for 10 years, conducting a wide range of research and publishing numerous scientific papers into the ecology, biology, genetics and physiology of sloths in Costa Rica, Panama, Brazil and Columbia. During this time, she has witnessed first-hand the multitude of problems being faced by wild sloth populations and as a result, became determined to do something about it. She founded SloCo with the drive to stimulate progressive change and achieve lasting solutions through research and conservation initiatives.
