Today we are participating in Facebook’s Giving Tuesday! It’s a chance to join in the holiday spirit and give back to the organizations and communities you love and want to support. Facebook will match up to a total of $7 million for all donations made through the platform today!
We are supporting Kids Saving the Rainforest, who care for local animals in Costa Rica…like baby sloths! Often sloths fall out of trees and get lost. This organization takes in orphans and injured adults to rehabilitate them with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. To increase their chances of being reintroduced to their native habitat, Sloths are in need of a large space to move around and understand their environment while being rehabilitated. The number of baby sloths being admitted to the clinic is resulting in overcrowding and little room for sloths to be properly weaned back into the wild. What happens when the sloths are released? GPS tracking backpacks and collars are used so that Kids Saving the Rainforest can check their health and learn from their habits to help with the future care of other injured and orphaned sloths.
Kids Saving the Rainforest does so much more than just care for sloths! They rehabilitate other wildlife, perform research on the rainforest ecosystem, train volunteers, and promote conservation, as well reforestation. They were founded by two 9 year old girls in 1999 to promote awareness and protection of their local rainforest.
If you would like to support them through Cameo and get a special video shout out from Coyote himself, you can order one by clicking HERE
