Central Florida Zoo announces new sponsor of two-toed sloth habitat

A trip to the Zoo would make a perfect birthday gift for any animal lover. But Al and Kathy Sarabasa, D&A Building Services, took it up a notch for their daughter’s birthday this year. The two-toed sloth habitat will be dedicated to Heather McCandless of DACG, Inc.


Habitat sponsorships help provide for the needs of the Zoo’s residents and allow the Zoo to continue with its mission to provide experiences that excite and inspire children and adults to learn and act on behalf of wildlife. Heather McCandless and DACG, Inc. will be featured at the Zoo and on the Zoo’s website.


In addition to sponsoring the sloth habitat, Al Sarabasa serves as a member of the Central Florida Zoological Society Board of Trustees, the non-profit education and conservation organization that operates the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens.


“We’re so thankful to Al for not only dedicating his time to serve the Zoo on the board, but also for this amazing gift, which is two-fold” said Richard E. Glover, Jr., the Central Florida Zoo’s CEO. “Not only is it a great gift for his daughter, it will also help us care for our animal residents and continue our mission of conservation.”


While they are not endangered, two-toed sloths can be affected by deforestation and habitat loss. The Central Florida Zoo is home to one two-toed sloth, Coral.
