3-Toed Sloth Released at La Hesperia




On Tuesday, we received a new member here at La Hesperia. A 3-toed sloth was found during work on the hydro-electric project along the Rio Pilaton and was released on the reserve. La Hesperia has an agreement with the hydro-electric project to serve as a sanctuary for animals found during construction.
