The Sloth Sanctuary

Tours

Introducing our latest attraction at Selvatura Park: The Sloth Sanctuary!  Our sanctuary was born through the cooperation with the Caribbean Sloth Sanctuary, a foundation that shares our vision of conservation, and has worked in the rescue, conservation, reintroduction, and monitoring of sloths in their natural habitat for over 20 years.

At Selvatura Park’s Sloth Sanctuary we want you to have a close experience with some 20 sloth specimens. We’ve designed a natural exhibit where sloths can travel freely between paths specially created so that they can roam among the trees and foliage of the exhibition. This provides a safe distance that allows observation while preventing as much stress on the animals as possible. These beautiful mammals have arrived at our sanctuary as refugees from the effects of poaching, habitat destruction, orphanage, illness and accidents among other reasons that prevent them from being reintroduced to their natural habitat.

Our collaboration with the Caribbean Sloth Sanctuary allows them to continue their mission to protect and liberate specimens to the wild, while at the same time we can pursue our mission to educate our visitors and promote environmental conservation.

In this guided tour you will learn about the natural history of sloths while observing close to 20 individuals of the two species that exist in our country. You will also learn about the mission of our sanctuary and the way in which we collaborate to protect and preserve this emblematic species for our country. This activity takes 45 minutes.
