Diamante’s Animal Sanctuary: Meet our sloths

Animal SanctuaryNature

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.

COSTA RICA ANIMAL SANCTUARY WILD LIFE

If you are planning to travel to Costa Rica to see wildlife, you are in the correct path! 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.
