Fun Wildlife on the Caribbean Islands 5 – There is Hope in the Caribbean!
About ten species of sloths existed in the Greater Antilles and surrounding islands until the first arrival of humans. Many of these species are now extinct. The female sloths were often killed so their young could be taken and sold on blackmarkets. Thanks to the great work of entities like the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica, Caribbean sloths can still be found on islands along the margin of the Caribbean. They have tours available too! Book a stay with CaribbeanDays and we can help you make arrangements to travel to this sanctuary and take a tour!
Thank you Jakob de Zwart for this excellent footage!
