In Costa Rica, a couple found a small sloth crawling toward the road. Because sloths only see well in low light, it was imperative that they helped it reach safety. Touching the animal could have startled it, so they grabbed a branch, let the little fella climb on, and whisked him to the safety of another tree.
In this next rescue, humans helped while they waited for nature to do the job. A woman found a beached baby dolphin. Animal rescue told her to keep the baby wet until the tide came in. Within 15 minutes of pouring bucketfuls of water, the tide came in and the baby safely swam away.
