THESE ARE SOME QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS WE HAVE HEARD FROM VISITORS, ALONG WITH THE ANSWERS.

Q. Why does it say you are "open for volunteers?
A. Because 

 

Q, - Sloths are nocturnal. Why do we wake our sloth up during the day?
A. - Sloths are not nocturnal. They are cathemeral. This means that the times they are active can vary greatly depending on environmental factors. This is mostly determined by  temperature, but there are other weather, predator, and food availability factors that can influence the times they are awake and active. These resting and active times can be any time of the night or day depending on a combination of those factors, and can vary throughout the year, or even from day to day. Also, the sloth will not wake up unless she wants to. We never make any of our animals do anything they don't want to do.

Q. - Where do your animals come from?
A. - About 90% of the animals in our care have come to us as one of the three "R's". Rescued, Rehabilitated, or Re-homed, or they have been born at our facility from parents that originally came to us as one of the Three "R's". The remaining animals are usually from trades with other facilities that are beneficial to all.
