Panamanian Couple Rescues and Rehabilitates Wayward Sloths For Release Back Into the Wild

National Geographic takes a look at a day in the life of Yiscel Yángüez and Néstor Correa, an amazing couple who run Asociación Panamericana Para la Concervación (APPC), a sloth rescue and rehabilitation organization in Gamboa, Panama.

When orphaned baby sloths are hungry or adults lose their habitat, Yiscel Yángüez and Néstor Correa are on the case. They run an animal rescue center in Gamboa, Panama, and specialize in sloth rehabilitation and relocation. For the two of them, releasing healthy sloths back into the wild can be a bittersweet experience.
