See a mother and baby sloth when Animal Junction, a traveling wildlife education company, comes to the Slought Foundation on November 9.  They introduce children and adults to the world of exotic animals by providing zoology enrichment programs. Animal Junction combines entertainment with education, thus providing an “edutainment” experience. Jungle Joe will talk about the animals’ survival instinct, natural history, physical geography, natural behaviors and conservation education. The program is structured and conducted to entertain and hold the interest of audience members, and to provide participants with basic information about exotic animals and their role in our environment. The interactive programs allow people to discover why these animals are unique and why they need protection.
