October 20th International Sloth Day
Okay, so slow down today and study the sloth. They don’t waste a lot of energy getting anywhere fast but then, why do they need to get anywhere fast anyway? They are cute animals, abused as most animals are and not exactly a house pet. Still, like all creatures in the world they serve a purpose. Today was created in 1996 by AIUNAU, an animal group determined to protect animals all across the world. They can live 20-30 years if not disturbed but are easy prey to hunters. They are primarily found in Tropical Rain Forests in Central and Southern America.
How to celebrate – Visit a Rain Forest. Help protect animals. Protect nature.
