Sloth rehabilitation centre on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica
Many of these sloths are orphans, and some have come in because they have been so badly injured in the Wild. Sometimes if they make a full recovery they can be released again, but sometimes they have to live their life out in the care of the staff and volunteer tourists at the centre.
The people who run this place once looked after birds. Then one day a little sloth was brought in to their home. They named her Buttercup. Soon, when the people in the nearby areas found sloths which needed help they started bringing them in and the sloth centre was born.
