On Costa Rica's Carribbean coast, sloths are losing their habitat to houses and roads, forcing them to cross between forest patches on the ground, making them vulnerable to traffic incidents and dog attacks.

Read the popular article written by Monica Pelliccia and translated by Maria Angeles Salazar here:
