Almond tree orchard at the Sloth SanctuaryPLANT AN ALMOND TREE

To celebrate Earth Day year-round, for your donation of $145, we’ll plant an Almond (Terminalia catappa) sapling in our orchard. Sloths consider Almond leaves a delicacy!

Your name is carved on a plaque on display at the Sanctuary. Or consider donating to honor a wedding couple, retirement, new baby, anniversary or in memoriam of a lost loved one. We’ll gladly put the name(s) of your honoree(s) on the plaque.

Please use the PayPal notes field to instruct us how you would like the name to read (about 25 characters maximum) on the plaque. Donations made after May 2015 will be displayed on the 2016 plaque. We will email a photo of the plaque to you when it is complete, and if you would like a copy sent to your honoree, please provide his/her email address. Thank you for your generous support and helping to conserve Costa Rica.
