Sloths are much beloved in Costa Rica. Unfortunately, expanding urban areas have encroached on their native jungle habitat, leaving power lines or roads as the only means of crossing from one jungle to the other. This can result in the creatures getting electrocuted, attacked by dogs or hit by cars. But with the help of a group called the Sloth Conservation Foundation, the Costa Rican government have built more than 130 "sloth crossings" – aerial ropes above the city where the sloths can slowly swing along until the next tree canopy. Monkeys and other arboreal animals are also enjoying the ropes as well.
