The Sloth Institute
Click To View Information Below:


Welcome to The Sloth Institute, located in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, dedicated to helping one of the most charismatic animals in Costa Rica, the sloth. The Sloth Institute focuses on the research, education, and release of hand-raised sloths back to the rainforest. The Sloth Institute also collaborates with Toucan Rescue Ranch to release their hand-raised orphaned sloths.


The Sloth Institute (TSI)’s mission is to enhance and expand the welfare and conservation of sloths.

The Sloth Institute has a 3 pronged approach to realizing its vision:

1) RESEARCH of captive, wild and recently released sloths including collaborations with conservationists and scientists around the world
2)  EDUCATION to generate and disseminate responsible information about sloths
3)  CONSERVATION programs that negate human encroachment issues impacting sloths welfare and habitat.

PLEASE NOTE: The Sloth Institute is not a sloth sanctuary.  TSI is a non-profit organization specializing in research and education with a particular focus on the behavior, health, and welfare of recently released, wild and captive sloths. Sloths are not available to be seen by the public as it is in their best interest to have as little human contact as possible. If you are staying at Tulemar Resort and are interested in a nature walk to see WILD sloths then please contact your concierge to schedule.
