Santuario de Animales de Diamante: conozcan nuestros perezosos

El santuario de animales es hogar de tres hermosos y lentos perezosos de dos dedos. Ellos fueron rescatados por el MINAE (Ministerio de Ambiente y Energía) y puestos bajo nuestro cuidado. Los perezosos de dos dedos son nativos de la zona de Guanacaste, sin embargo, estos tres fueron rescatados fuera de la provincia. Los perezosos son criaturas muy delicadas debido a la lentitud de su metabolismo, por lo cual los procesos de recuperación son muy desafiantes.
Debido a una alta exposición en redes sociales, muchas personas se han fascinado con los perezosos y esto dio pie a la creación del Día Internacional del Perezoso. Este día se dedica a concientizar a las personas sobre el ciclo de vida del perezoso y su hábitat natural, al igual que educar a las personas sobre este animal tan adorable.

Esta es la historia de los perezosos de Diamante Eco Adventure Park:

Diamante’s Animal Sanctuary: Meet our sloths

The Animal Sanctuary is home to three beautiful, slow-moving, two-toed sloths. All of them have been rescued by the Wildlife Ministry of Costa Rica and put in our care. Two-toed sloths are native to the Guanacaste area but these three were rescued outside of the province. Sloths are very delicate creatures due to their slow metabolism, so nursing them back to health is a challenge in itself.

Due to more media awareness, many people became fascinated with sloths and International Sloth Day was created. This special day was designed to raise awareness about the sloth life cycle and natural habitat as well as, educate people about this loveable animal.

The following are stories about our resident sloths:

ANIMAL SANCTUARY COSTA RICA WILD LIFE

If you are planning to travel and see Costa Rica wildlife, you’re surely right on the path to the most amazing animal sanctuary Costa Rica – in its entirety – has to offer! Each region of the country has an impressive variety of flora and fauna. So you can expect to see wildlife no matter where you are. Costa Rica currently has 32 national parks, 51 wildlife refuges, 13 forests reserves and 8 biological reserves. With these numbers very present within the population, there is a high concern for conservation efforts.

The biggest threat to wildlife is the rapidly growing human population. Also the extraction of flora and fauna from their habitats. To counteract the negative impact on wildlife Costa Rica passed the Wildlife Conservation Law. In short and easy terms, the law mandates that you do not remove any plant life nor engage with any wild animal by feeding or removing them from their habitat. In fact many rescue centers and sanctuaries emerged from the need to rescue and rehabilitate harmed animals that were victims of wildlife trafficking.
