WIN a sloth feeding experience!

Flash's Birthday Fundraiser!

To celebrate Flash's 8th birthday, we are thrilled to offer the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience - a close encounter feeding experience with our sloths Flash and Gordon!

Flash was hand-reared by keepers at Drusillas Park, when her mother sadly passed away when she was just a few months old, so she is a very special sloth indeed. For her birthday this year, instead of gifts, she is asking for your help to raise money for her wild cousins in Costa Rica.

The Prize

  • Sloth close encounter feeding experience for two people
  • Sloth plush toy
  • Official Flash adoption pack

Be invited behind the scenes of the Zoo to spend some magical moments inside our sloth habitat with the opportunity to hand feed Flash and Gordon. Our winner will also take away a sloth plush toy and an official Flash adoption pack. 

The prize draw opens on Flash's birthday, 26th March, and runs until 16th April! You are welcome to enter as many times as you like, with 100% of monies raised pledged to The Sloth Conservation Foundation.

The Experience

This truly unforgettable experience will give you the chance to meet fabulous Flash and gorgeous Gordon up close! An amazing one-to-one experience lasting between 30 and 40 minutes which will leave you grinning from ear to ear. 

This VIP Experience includes:

  • Full day admission to Drusillas Park for both participants
  • Sloth food preparations in our Zoo Kitchen
  • The chance to feed Flash and Gordon
  • One-on-one time with a Zoo Keeper
  • The opportunity for some close-up sloth photography
  • Animal Encounter certificate 

As cute and cuddly as sloths may seem, they do not enjoy being touched or handled so our sloth experiences are non-contact, but they love taking snacks from your hands!

The experience is for a maximum of two participants (minimum age is 5 years, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).

Full details on our sloth experiences and health and safety guidelines can be found on our website here.

The Cause

The Sloth Conservation Foundation based in Costa Rica is dedicated to the protection of sloths living in wild and human-modified habitats through research, education and community-based conservation.

SloCo are currently embarking on their biggest project to date - the great sloth population census, using the first ever sloth detection dogs. Flash would love to raising enough money for her birthday to sponsor (at least) one VHF radio collar and compact data logger at a cost of around £2,000.

Every donation will make a huge difference to protecting wild sloths from the devastating effects of urbanisation. 100% of monies raised will be donated to The Sloth Conservation Foundation. 

Please read our competition terms and conditions before entering.
