This event will serve as a grand introduction to our new animals as well as bring awareness to conservation efforts in Panama.

Purchase a limited edition t-shirt and your money will go directly to the Asociación Panamericana Para la Conservación (APPC) further support their efforts to save the wild animals of Panama, and assist them in buying much needed supplies.

In July 2018 Zoo Miami partnered with the APPC (Pan American Conservation Association)  to bring two orphaned two-toed sloths back to Zoo Miami. The sloths, Chelsea and Pete, serve as ambassadors for their species when they accompany their keepers to meet our guests. The APPC works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate many different species of animals within Panama. Since 2005 they have rescued and relocated more than 4,500 wild animals, returning more than 80% of them to their natural habitat.
