Meet the Sloths!

03 Nov

For the last year we have been collaborating with Discovery/Animal Planet on a major eight-part series about our work here at the Sloth Sanctuary. We have filmed dramatic sloth rescues, emotional releases and all of the daily dramas associated with providing a home to over 100 orphaned and injured sloths. ‘Meet the Sloths’ also features a lighthearted look at some of our ground-breaking scientific research – this includes the beginning of the Backpack Project, discovering how sloths can swim and busting some common myths about sloth speed and digestion.


I am delighted to announce that this sloth-filled series will be premiering globally over the next few weeks. Scheduled transmission times are as follows:

- in the US at 11am on Saturday November 9th on Animal Planet,

- in the UK at 8pm on Thursday November 14th on Animal Planet UK,

- in Canada on Saturday November 23rd on Animal Planet Canada.

We will be doing exclusive interviews and Q&A sessions over the coming weeks so be sure to keep an eye out for updates. I hope you enjoy the show!
