October 20 is International Sloth Day! (Cute Video)

Today (October 20) is the second annual International Sloth Day! Organized by Colombia’s Fundación AIUNAU (a wildlife rescue non-profit), the day aims to raise awareness of sloths and the challenges they face.

This adorable video, by writer Lucy Cooke, shows some of the rescue activities at AIUNAU. (It was filmed in March; since then, most of the sloths featured in the video have been rehabilitated and successfully released back into the wild!)

The Video, doesn't exist ??..I would have like to see a little more about the sloths, but there was no video. There was a previous article on sloths, that was beautiful, but with releasing the sloths back into the wild, are we endangering their lives as suggested by another comment. I certainly hope not..
