I thought this might be an opportunity to bring to your attention another matter concerning the plight of an endangered species. As a regular supporter of Care2 Petition Site I recently received a request from their website to endorse a petition addressed to the people of the tiny island of Escudo de Veraguas. (off the coast of Panama). This island with its red mangrove swamps is home to the three toed Pygmy Sloth. It is estimated that 80% of the population has been decimated by human activity and there are only approx 100 survivors. Can I ask members of this forum to add their support to this petition?
