Since 2015, the Tulemar Resort has worked in collaboration with The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica helping to ensure the continued health of these unique and rare animals that play such an integral part in our local tropical rainforest ecosystems.
The Sloth Institute Costa Rica (TSI) is a non-profit organization based in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. Its mission is to enhance the well-being and conservation of wild and captive sloths through research and education. They are also dedicated to collaborating with other sloth rehabilitation and release programs.
Tulemar and the maritime zone offer the perfect environment to introduce sloths as the resort sits in a large parcel of the jungle including the adjacent maritime zone, containing an abundant source of excellent food choices, a significant wild sloth population, the absence of dangerous electrical wires, a strict “no dogs and cats” policy and with Tulemar’s commitment to dedicate this land for the preservation of the sloths, choosing Tulemar for this endeavor.
Educational information about the sloths, The Sloth Institute and its programs, and how homeowners and guests can help is available at www.theslothinstitutecostarica.org
This is an important program for Costa Rica, the sloths and the communities of Manuel Antonio and Tulemar are proud to be a partner!
