#2 of 8 in Wildlife in French Guiana
Visit Association Chou Ai to cuddle a soft sloth at a sanctuary dedicated to the protection of this slow-moving and furry creature. The park gathers injured and endangered animals, rehabilitates them, and releases them back into the wild. Two species of sloth sheltered here are distinguishable by the number of their toes. The sanctuary aims to educate visitors about various dangers facing this animal, often hunted for its claws.

  • Always as nice to be able to be so close to these lazy! We can no longer hold them in our arms when there are too many crowds, but it is probably better so for the well being of these little beasts! The volunteers are passionate, and answer the various questions with pleasure! I went there in November, but when I wanted to go back in December with the family, the association informed us that they were under the blow of an administrative closure.... Another overzealous official who has nothing better to do? Hoping that it reopens as soon as possible....

  • Congratulations to the entire team for their work, as well as their determination to protect these small fragile animals. When the doors open, the volunteers were able to explain their missions, and give us a lot of information on the lazy pal. They managed to raise us, we fell under the spell of these hairballs! We were able to enjoy the lazy on our first day (less crowded). The memories are affordable, we were able to take several. More volunteers would be preferable during vacations or holidays, for the safety of the little animals and respect for the association (some people take the opportunity to don't pay admission while the funds to keep the association ). Despite 'groupies of tourists', I have very good memories of two days spent with the lazy! Good job to you, strength and courage!
