THANK YOU to all the Girl Scouts who entered the drawing for the giant plush sloth as part of the 2020 Fall Product Program!
CONGRATULATIONS to Dylan L.! She won the sloth! Girl Scouts of Colorado selected a winner by having a random drawing.
As part of the qualifications for the giant sloth drawing, the GSCO Product Program team asked Girl Scouts who entered the drawing to do some online research and tell us something interesting that they found out about how people and organizations who are working to save the sloth.
Having the pygmy sloth as the 2020 Fall Product Program mascot helped to bring awareness to conservation efforts, and to inspire Girl Scouts to make a difference in the world by helping animals who are endangered species.
There are fewer than 100 pygmy three-toed sloths left in the world. They are on the critically endangered list because of destruction to their habitat, which is mangrove forests, on Escudo de Veraguas, a tiny island off the east coast of mainland Panama.
All of the Girl Scouts who completed an entry form did a great job sharing the information that they learned about the three-toed pygmy sloth and the people and organizations that are working to help save the species.
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She was at the can send in her story here.
