PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix Zoo, struggling like others worldwide during coronavirus closures, has found an unlikely savior in a sloth. While Fernando may be a slow mover offline, the 4-year-old Linne's two-toed sloth has risen rapidly on the internet. Since Fernando joined Cameo, a video-sharing platform where people pay for celebrity shoutouts, the zoo has received 150 requests for a personalized clip. His popularity let the zoo boost his fee from $25 to $50. "I think we've gotten more creative, kind of thinking a little bit outside the box. We're trying things we never have before," said Bert Castro, Phoenix Zoo's president and CEO. Social media is one way zoos worldwide are engaging with people who can no longer visit - their main source of income - and raise some much-needed cash. Zoos and aquariums have brought adorable distraction by posting photos and videos of animals, but the closures mean they're still in jeopardy. While a smattering of zoos, from Utah to Germany, have started reopening with social distancing rules, there's no telling when they will reach their usual levels of visitors and revenue. Besides jobs, the well-being of the animals is at stake. "They can't just send their employees home and turn off the lights and lock the doors. They have to care for animals," said Dan Ashe, president of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The association's 220 U.S. zoos and aquariums, which typically host a combined 200 million people annually, all closed, Ashe said. A recent survey showed more than 60% have laid off or furloughed employees. About 60% of its members have applied for loans through the federal coronavirus relief package intended to limit layoffs at small businesses and nonprofits. The Phoenix Zoo, a $1 million-a-month...
