Chasing Sloths Hundreds Of Feet Above The Ground

Watch the next episode about being a taxidermist:

“I think for me, being outside; there’s always been some connection. I don’t want to be on my phone, I don’t like being in front of a computer screen, I like being outside in the trees,” said Voirin. “I just feel really at ease and very happy out there.”
