Conservation Corner: Two-toed Sloth

Deforestation and other forms of habitat destruction remain threats for the sloth. Other human-made threats include power lines and roads. Educating children and adults in the sloths’ home countries about their importance to the ecosystem—and how to treat sloths respectfully—remains a challenge for those who want to help this unique and wonderful creature.
