Thanks to You We’ve Raised Over £3,600 for the Pygmy Sloth!

A big thank you to all our supporters who donated and spread the word about our campaign – each of you helped us to raise a grand total of £3,653 which we will use to implement vital conservation actions to rescue the last hundred pygmy sloths from extinction!

Hopefully we will be going back to Escudo Island in September or October to collect more data on the pygmy sloth population, as well as begin thorough socio-economic surveys and initiatives to try and establish sustainable livelihoods for the people who live near and on the island.

This would involve stopping the degradation of red mangrove patches where the sloths live, instead promoting the use of alternative resources in the fishing communities.

By doing these actions and more we aim to reverse the decline of the pygmy sloth population and make sure they hang around for future generations to see. Although this species is on the EDGE, we are sure that your contributions have helped to preserve its future and that we will achieve a real conservation success that will be talked about for years to come.

"Thanks for helping EDGE save me!"


Even though this campaign is closed, you can still donate to the EDGE programme to help other endangered animals in need…

    Hello my name is heather and i am currently studying Environmental biology as my major. However the more involved i get into biology the more i wish i could do. My five year old son loves the sloths he is very passionate about animals in general and i am trying to encourage him to follow his heart and help him learn as much as possible. We just recently joined this site to understand more about animals that need our help. He is very excited and happy that the sloths are getting notice. We wanted to say thank you for all you have done and we will continue to support in anyway we can by spreading the word and asking for donations for your site.
