Funding and coordinating high quality scientific research
published in open-access peer-reviewed journals.

In order to develop and implement any good conservation strategy, a solid
scientific knowledge of the sloth’s ecological requirements is necessary. For this
reason, we fund, coordinate and write high quality research into many different
aspects of sloth biology and ecology. Existing and ongoing research projects
from the Sloth Conservation Foundation include:
