In September 2016 Green Heritage Fund Suriname (GHFS) and Welttierschutzgesellschaft e.V. (WTG) signed a cooperation agreement to work together to rescue, care, rehabilitate and release sloths, anteaters and armadillos in Suriname. This partnership was renewed with a new cooperation agreement in March of 2018. Welttierschutzgesellschaft e.V. (WTG) is a Berlin/Germany based registered non-profit organisation. Their vision is a world, in which animals are appreciated by people, treated according to their needs and with respect. In their work for animal welfare WTG focuses on countries and regions with little protection for animals. They aim at improving the situation for animals in the long term i.e. by providing veterinary care, by supporting animal sanctuaries and through educational work. WTG cooperates with local partner organisations and involves the people who are directly concerned. The cooperation agreement is initially signed for one year and will provide the GHFS with financial support for the Sloth rehabilitation centre in the form of a first-ever Sloth rescue vehicle, intensive care equipment and other animal care equipment, as well as support for the medical care for all rescued animals.
