Monique Pool, the founder of the Green Heritage Fund Suriname, lives with 200 sloths.

Monique has been rescuing sloths since 2012, and rehabilitating them in her home in Suriname, South America. Suriname is in an area which includes around 25% of the world’s natural forest.

She rescues about 2 sloths per week. At first she expected to rescue 14 - she now has 200!

She releases them back into the wild within a couple of days unless they need further care. Monique is working to build a sloth park in the country, saying it has “enormous tourist potential”.

Aren't they the cutest?
