The Science of Sloths (S.O.S.) is comprised of professionals that are dedicated to the welfare of sloths in human care. We noticed that it was very difficult for professionals to find good, proven information that would improve the lives of sloths. The information that is available, is often behind paywalls or fragmented in professional organizations and limited to those with memberships.
Through a social media group (join us! www.facebook.com/groups/slothkeepers) a community was created of 500+ sloth professionals from around the world to exchange information. The group comprises of researchers, husbandry curators, professional animal keepers, rehabilitators in home countries and veterinarians. We hope the S.O.S. webpage will act as an extension and archive for the information shared in that group as well as answer commonly asked questions and provide scientifically proven guidelines.
S.O.S. operates under the Educated Zookeeper, LLC a professional organization dedicated to enhancing animal care by creating networking opportunities for zookeepers through workshops, tours, and informal receptions. S.O.S. is funded through the Educated Zookeeper, LLC, donations and crowd sourcing campaigns.
We are proud to support sloth care worldwide!
