Learning About Sloths & Other Wildlife: Hidden Gems of Costa Rica
With 112 active volcanoes and 46 percent of its landscape made up of forests, Costa Rica is known for its biodiversity. Don’t just wait to view wildlife from a distance? To really interact and learn, visit the Toucan Rescue Ranch. The ranch rehabilitates and then releases hundreds of animals that were once at risk. These are animals that were endangered in black market trade, both from accidents and because of the effects of deforestation or construction. The animals are rehabilitated and released back into the wild.
But, as Peter discovered, the main attraction at the Toucan Rescue Ranch are the sloths. The babies are the epitome of cute.
Watch Peter’s first Hidden Gem of Costa Rica to see a baby sloth in action.
