The Kid Should See This

Inside a Baby Sloth Orphanage and Rescue Center

At the Asociación Panamericana para la Conservación in Gamboa, Panama, Yiscel Yángüez and Néstor Correa work day and night to rescue and relocate hundreds of wild animals a year. Their specialization: rescuing, raising, and releasing sloths. Correa emphasizes:

“All the animals that we have were rescue animals, every single one. So it’s very important for people to understand that we work in wildlife, and these animals are not pets. Once these animals are ready to go back to the wild, they will.”

Watch as they nurse the orphans in their care, relocate a sloth trying to cross a busy Panama highway, and in an emotional goodbye, release a sloth they’ve raised since it was just a few months old.

In the archives: more animal rescues and recoveries.
