Help abused sloths recover

With this gift, you could provide food and veterinary care to sloths rescued from a life of cruelty and abuse in the hands of the tourism industry. At the AIUNAU, our local partner in Colombia, sloths are provided the proper care, nutrition and habitat so they can be rehabilitated and released back into the wild - where they belong.

  • Meet baby Machito

    When he arrived at the AIUNAU, Machito showed signs of the abuse he’d suffered. He had marks and sores from a rope, his left arm wasn’t working properly, and his long nails, which act as toes for sloths, were broken. One of the nails was completely missing. Even weeks later, Machito still cries out quite often – a sign he was probably torn from his mother when tiny. Thankfully, Machito has now started to respond to the care and expertise of the rehabilitation centre and is slowly recovering. It’ll take at least a year before Machito, which means ‘little man’, is ready to be released into the wild.
