Current Offers Sponsor a Sloth

Sponsor a Sloth

Until May 31 2018, with each Costa Rica trip booked we’re sponsoring a sloth in the Manuel Antonio National Park.

Kids Saving the Rainforest (KSTR) rescues and rehabilitates injured and orphaned wildlife in and around Costa Rica. The sloths in the sanctuary are given medical attention, with as little human contact as possible, so that once they’re better they can be released back into the wild.

The sloth sponsorship helps to cover food and medical supplies for a whole year. Customers on our Costa Rica trips that visit the area can also go along to the project to see the fantastic work being done and even see the sloths they care for.


Simply book any trip to Costa Rica by 31 May 2018 quoting ‘Sponsor a Sloth’ at the time of booking and we’ll sponsor a sloth on your behalf.

Five things you didn’t know about sloths

1. All sloths have three toes on their feet. The two-toed sloth still has three toes but unlike other sloths, it only has two fingers per hand.
2. Sloths are part of the Pilosa group of mammals, so are related to anteaters and armadillos.
3. Sloths can extend their tongues 10 to 12 inches out of their mouths.
4. Sloths typically leave their trees only once a week to relieve themselves.
5. Sloths have a four-part stomach that very slowly digests the tough leaves they eat; it can take up to a month for them to digest a meal, meaning they have very little surplus energy to move. This is why they are one of the world’s slowest moving animals.
