Three Toed Sloth

Causes of Endangerment
A major reason the sloth is endangered is because they are an easy target for predators. They do not move very fast so they do not really have anything to protect themselves with other than their claws.
Money is being collected to help protect these animals as much as possible. A project is being done using Isla Escudo de Veraguas as a unique habitat for the sloth.
