Eco-Heroines: Monique and the Sloths

1 x 52 HD 4K
Broadcaster:  Ushuaia TV

Sloths – famous around the world for their slow pace of life – are under threat. In Suriname, their numbers are falling at a staggering rate as their forest habitat is transformed into towns and roads. Since 2005, Monique Pool, nicknamed the Sloth Lady, has been working tirelessly to protect this unique species with a shelter for injured sloths and an area of forest protected from development to ensure that the local sloths have a safe place to live.

 

Get up close with this amazing animal as Monique rescues sloths from urban areas, nurses injured sloths back to full health and releases them back into the forest.
