4. Sponsor a Sloth Crossing ($150 / £115)
Without a natural or artificial canopy bridge the only way for a sloth to cross a road is by crawling, which takes a lot of time and energy and leaves them very vulnerable to traffic collisions, dog attacks and human exploitation. We are constructing specialized ‘sloth crossing’ canopy bridges to make it easier for sloths to safely travel across roads and between forest fragments in urban areas.
This donation will buy the raw materials needed to construct a full single-rope canopy bridge to help sloths travel safely. If you sponsor a Sloth Crossing then we will install a personalized wooden plaque next to the bridge engraved with a name of your choice (this would make a fantastic gift for any sloth lover)! For gift sponsorship’s we can also email an information pack as well as photos of the finished bridge and plaque after installation on request.
5. Sponsor sloth-friendly trees
By planting trees through our tropical habitat restoration program in Costa Rica, you can provide safe habitat for sloths, protect biodiversity and help to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It’s a triple win!
You can make a custom donation to plant a particular number of trees, and we will choose tree species that are favoured by wild sloths for you! We will then plant them in key conservation areas where habitat loss is threatening the survival of sloths. All trees are grown in our SloCo forest nursery and are monitored to ensure survival. If a tree dies, it is replaced! If you sponsor some trees as a gift, we can send a gift certificate, information packet and photos of the trees on request (just send us an email after your purchase)!
6. Protect 20 square meters of primary rainforest for sloths ($50 / £38)
Habitat loss from the destruction of trees is the greatest threat to the survival of sloths. We believe that the only immediate solution to prevent the rampant and ongoing urbanization of the rainforest is to strategically buy the land and shield the ecosystem from development. 100% of your donation will go towards purchasing and protecting threatened primary rainforest habitat in the South Caribbean region (Limón) of Costa Rica where sloth populations are suffering. If this is a gift, we can send a gift certificate and information packet on request (just send us an email after your purchase)!
7. Sloth Activity Booklet ($15 / £12)
SloCo graphic designer Cecilia Pamich has lovingly created a series of sloth activity booklets which use fun facts, activities and puzzles to help children learn all about sloths and wildlife conservation. It is perfect for use with school groups, or just as a way to keep your child entertained for hours! We currently offer two versions of the booklet in both English and Spanish in exchange for a donation of $15. 100% of this donation will go towards supporting our sloth education outreach programs for indigenous children in Costa Rica.
8. Sloth Apparel for everyone
