Threats to sloths
The critically endangered pygmy sloth is only found on the unhabituated Escudo de Veraguas, a tiny island off the coast of Panama. Although Escudo is protected, its natural resources may be legally used by local people resulting in small scale logging, fishing and littering.
The numbers of people seasonally inhabiting the island is rapidly increasing, threatening the pygmy sloth and the island habitat it depends on.
How is ZSL helping?
Our field team visit Escudo twice a year to monitor the number of pygmy sloths and to research their activity and habitat. We also work with local communities to educate people on the importance of protecting the environment and encourage sustainable living.
How does an adoption help the sloths?
By adopting the sloths you are showing your love and support for this unique species. The adoption helps fund ZSL’s conservation work in Escudo de Veraguas, as well as providing care for the sloths as ZSL London Zoo.
