Does anyone have any places for volunteering with sloths???
I love these animals and have become a bit obsessed of late and really want to volunteer somewhere.
The only place i can find is the centre in costa rica which looks great but is so expensive!
I dont mind paying towards volunteering but as i have volunteered in the past many times and pay around $100 a week maybe slightly more, they charge $80 a day which i think is rather alot.

I heard about a centre in guatemala but i cant find any info about it.
Any help much apprieciated smile

Wow sounds interesting and very unique. What would you do with them? Don’t they sleep all day?

well the centre in costa rica, rescues and rehabilitates them back to the wild, usually i believe either orphaned or from the illegal pet trade.

They feed and provide suitable environment until they can be released, same as most other rescue centres though i think they have a fair few babies to hand rear.

They do sleep alot but not all day and the young require regular feeding, but as i havnt found anywhere to volunteer i dont know all the ins and outs.

Just wondering if anyone else has done it and could tell me where to go smile
