A Sloth Named Velcro-Non-Fiction (NR) 60 minutes

A SLOTH NAMED VELCRO-NON-FICTION – NR – Nature - Offering new insights about these fascinating animals while overturning old myths. A Sloth Named Velcro tells the story of Ana Salceda's return to Central and S. America to see how much has changed since Velcro came into her life and to document current sloth conservation efforts. In 2000, Ana, a young Spanish print and tv journalist, moved from her native Spain to explore the wilds of Panama, but couldn't have predicted the turn her life would have taken when she became the caregiver for a tiny orphaned baby sloth, which she named Velcro. For nearly two years, the pair was inseparable, until the day came for Velcro to be reintroduced back to the wild. But their time together jumpstarted Ana's introduction into and involvement with the larger conservation story of sloths, as well as with their caretakers and supporters. – Family film — another environmental film: THE PARROTS OF TELEGRAPH HILL
