Support us

The Sanctuary is funded by donations

We are privately owned by the Avey-Arroyo-Rochté family but are not yet recognized as a non-profit organization. Located inside the 300-acre Aviarios del Caribe Private Wildlife Reserve, we have been legally classified with the Costa Rican government and MINAET as a wildlife reserve.

Your donation supports our conservation efforts and goes directly to the rescue, rehabilitation and research of injured and orphaned sloths. We also provide a safe haven for sloths that cannot return to their natural habitat because of permanent disability. Your donation is secure via PayPal. We and the sloths of Costa Rica thank you for your generosity.

Plant an Almond tree for Earth Day!We’re celebrating Earth Day Every Day by planting an Almond Tree for your donation of $150. We accept donations to plant Almond Trees year-round, because sometimes people like to honor others (wedding, in memoriam, new baby, etc.), not just for Earth Day. Names are carved into a wood plaque on display at the Sanctuary. Names for donations after May 30, 2015, will be honored on the 2016 plaque. Your tree will still be planted this year! Thank you for your generosity.
