[General description section]
I have been involved in work with biodiversity in agroforestry systems and conservation biology projects in southern Bahia, Brazil.

I chose to work with manned sloths because this species has been identified as one of the top 100 priority species for conservation attention.

The green algae that live in the fur of sloths provide them with excellent camouflage.
