aza sloths

Species Survival Plans ® are cooperatively managed programs between the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and AZA-accredited facilities to manage animal populations in care. 

The Sloth Program manages two species of sloths; Choloepus didactylus & Choloepus hoffmani, both in care in the United States. 

Through experts in the field, sloth populations are managed and recommended with sustainability in mind. Programs, like the Sloth Program, seek to establish populations that are genetically diverse to create sustainable populations.
