Wildlife conservationist and photographer Sam Trull’s world changed forever when she gave up her comfortable life in the United States for the wilds of Costa Rica. After almost twenty years of working with animals, one creature in particular had captured her heart: the sloth.
In her stunning photo book, SLOTHLOVE, Sam shares intimate portraits of these captivating and endearing animals from her unique perspective as their protector, mother, and friend. Woven in with these images are unforgettable stories of heartbreak and survival, as well as interesting facts about these intelligent and beautiful creatures. SLOTHLOVE is an unforgettable journey into the trees of the Costa Rican rainforest and a moving portrait of the profound connection between humans and animals.
As background, Sam and her sloths were featured as a main episode of the BBC One series Nature’s Miracle Orphans, which aired on PBS stations around the United States. Also, back in 2014, Sam made scientific history by performing the first ever sloth C-section.
The Mental Floss video on Slothlove did more than 3 million views in its first day and the shares are in the hundreds of thousands. This book has sold out on Amazon and B&N.
