THANK YOU FOR THINKING OF THE SLOTHS!
Good binoculars are essential for sloth identification and research. Vanguard Endeavor ED II 10 x 42 Binoculars are our favourite:
Our current sling shot has had a very long life and the rubber is starting to degrade. We use this equipment for the construction of our sloth crossing wildlife canopy bridges, installing sloth camera traps and for performing rescues where tree climbing is necessary.
This is essential for our research, sloth tracking and reforestation programs. We use this tape to mark the trees that sloths are using and to label all of the saplings that we plant through the Connected Gardens Project (degradable material).
Handheld GPS Unit
This is essential for our sloth research and tracking projects as we need to get an accurate GPS location for all of our collared sloths every single day. Our current unit is 10 years old and is starting to fail. While any model of handheld GPS will be gratefully received, we have had great results from the Garmin 64s receiver!
Note Taking Tablet
Our field staff make behavioural observations on wild and recently released sloths every day, and by using a tablet to directly record the data via an ethogram this drastically reduces the time needed for transcription. Any reliable tablet will work for this!
