The Sloth Institute
The Sloth Institute is located in Manuel Antonio National Park -their aim is to conduct research and learn more about the species, educate people about the animals, and work towards much needed conservation efforts. This is not a sanctuary, but a non-profit institute that is doing everything it can to take care of the sloths that end up here, and to release them back into their natural environment as soon as they are ready. While the research and care center is not open to the public (in the best interests of the sick, injured, or orphaned sloths there), you can schedule a guided nature walk and see the animals in their wild environment. As with most non-profit organizations, donations are greatly appreciated. You can make a cash donation to the institute, you can ‘adopt a sloth’, or you can purchase an item from the TSI Sloth Wishlist on Amazon.
