Baby Sloth Sanctuary In Costa Rica: The Cute Show

20844 ratings | 2195707 views
As soon as I heard about the Aviarios Del Caribe sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica I knew it would be perfect for the Cute Show. It's the world's only sloth orphanage, home to over a hundred very sleepy urchins whose lives have been saved by legendary sloth whisperer Judy Arroyo. Sloths are fantastically weird animals, the junkies of the jungle who seem to spend their lives either nodding off or scratching and occasionally eating a bean or two before drifting back to what looks like a blissful sleep. The babies are especially helpless and comical and I fell in love with them immediately. So I cut a few choice clips together to show my old colleague VBS UK producer Vida Toombs and Cute Show creator Amy Kellner and posted the video on my Vimeo page. To my surprise the clip went viral and was watched by a million people in a week. Clearly I was not alone in thinking that these animals had super squee powers. So here is my Cute Show about the sloths, the perfect prelude to a sneaky daytime nap. If you fall for these animals like I did then you can join the sanctuary's volunteer programme. Trainee sloth wranglers get to feed the sloths and help exercise and potty train the babies. The sanctuary runs on donations and voluntary help so you can do your bit by helping these vulnerable creatures whose jungle home is being slowly destroyed by pesticides, sold off to US real estate agencies and sliced up by roads and power lines.

This sanctury is bad. They put sloths into small cages so that they can get stressed and reproduce that is why they have so many babies

why are u rescuing sloths that have been abandoned by their mothers? that's just nature, social Darwinian. Don't interfere. However cute they look and however much u want to care for them, its the law of the jungle that some will be too weak to survive. only rescue animals that have been orphaned due to human involvement

Why did I not know this was an available job?.
Its irony when the volunteer said delilah is kinda shy and cute for covering her face while actually real vet who check on them clearly said she was stressed because of the small cage and want privacy... 😢 You guys should check dodo article about this horrible sanctuary...

They kidnap these sloths from the wild and they hoard them in this facility known as jail. A lot of these sloths are health and tried to escape. They are crammed in the back away from public view but previous veterinarians spoke out about the abuse in this so called sanctuary. Wild animals belong in the wilds. Deforestization is causing these animals to be endangered and extinct
J N (2 months ago)
Bonnie Moore no you dumbfck there is still a lot of wild life left. they need to be released back in the wild after they’re heeled from their injuries. Even if a lot of the forest is gone it’s still not 0.00% no forest. There is still forest so these hoarders and animal abusers need to RELEASE THE SLOTHS TO THE WILD. This is NOT a sanctuary this is an animal hoarding facility very much like a puppy mill where people hoard dogs. Are you retardedd? “What wild do they have” many countries have a large forest the earth is covered by dense forestization. There are still tribes in 2018. There’s plenty of wild. Just because this country laws allow their forest to be reduced doesn’t mean the rest of the world is like this. There’s plenty of wild in Brazil in Costa Rica in Thailand. Wtf are you a dumbarse?
Bonnie Moore (3 months ago)
J N THERE IS NO WILD ! YOU JUST SAID DEFORESTATION IS GETTING RID OF THEIR HOMES AND CAUSING THEM TO BECOME EXTINICT. SO THEY END UP IN THESE PLACES HERE . WHAT?SHOULD THEY JUST GIVE UP AND DIE ? WHERE TO THEY GO IF THERE ARE NO SANCTUARIES ? WHAT WILD DO THEY HAVE ? HUH ? WHAT ?WHERE ? WHEN ? WHO?
