The Sloth Bear are an endangered species whose numbers are in severe decline. This species has been recognized as one of the most threatened with extinction by the IUCN- Bear Specialist Group. Sloth bears are listed as Appendix I in CITES.

Threats to Survival: Sloth bears face severe habitat loss and heavy poaching mainly for the medicinal market. Natural predators such as wild dogs, tigers and leopards also take a toll on juveniles.

Sloth Bears are believed to number less than 20,000 in the wild (there are believed to be 21,000 - to 28,000 Polar Bears left in the wild, and only 1,000 Pandas left in the wild)
