Video Assignment: Save the Sloths

This assignment was originally titled “Save The Sea Turtles” but I decided to remix it and do “Save The Sloths” because sloths are one of my tied favorite animals and I feel like there is less recognition for sloths than there are sea turtles. Pygmy Three-Toed Sloths are a critically endangered member of the sloth family and they are located in Panama. Many factors such as habitat loss and fragmentation, exploitation for food, predators such as feral cats, and lack of sufficient legal protection for pygmy three-toed sloths and their habitat have caused a sharp decrease in its population. These cute sloths need to be protected just as much as more widely know creatures like whales and wolves as all living creatures contribute to a healthy environment, not matter how little or more they do to support it.
