Call for Artists: Join Toucan Rescue Ranch's "Keeping Costa Rica Wild" Fun-Raiser!

Since 2016, Toucan Rescue Ranch has hosted an annual art contest to raise funds for our amazing projects and programs. Thanks to the creativity and generosity of artists like you, we've bought new medical equipment, provided our COVID-19-pandemic relief fund, built pre-release enclosures, and even created an education center!

This year, we're back with a bang and a brand new theme: "Keeping Costa Rica Wild"! We’re inviting artists from all over the world to join us in celebrating and protecting the incredible wildlife of Costa Rica. 

About the Keeping Costa Rica Wild Program at Toucan Rescue Ranch:

Our Keeping Costa Rica Wild Program is a cornerstone of what we do at TRR. From tayras and wildcats to otters and spider monkeys, we provide top-notch care for various species. Your support helps these amazing creatures and fuels new initiatives to conserve Costa Rica's wildlife.

Why is this year's theme "Keeping Costa Rica Wild"?

This year, we're focusing on the beauty and importance of keeping Costa Rica's natural habitats wild and wonderful. Here’s why 

  • Get Involved: Support this program by submitting artwork, donating, sharing this campaign, or all of the above!
  • Celebrate Nature: Let's show off the incredible diversity of Costa Rica’s wildlife and why it’s worth saving for generations to come through the expression of art.

🫶Keep Costa Rica Wild: Every Bit Helps! 

Costa Rica is a treasure trove of unique and endangered species. With your help, the Keeping Costa Rica Wild Program can continue to protect these precious creatures. In 2024 alone, we expect to care for 500 orphaned and injured animals. This ambitious effort will cost approximately $50,200. 

We aim to raise $10,000 for the Keeping Costa Rica Wild program, which will cover approximately 10 weeks of care and rehabilitation for hundreds of orphaned and injured animals, including tayras, wildcats, otters, and spider monkeys. Every donation, no matter the size, brings us closer to this goal and makes a significant impact. 

🐾Here's how your contribution will be utilized:

  • 45% covers animal costs, such as food and daily needs of the animals
  • 30% goes towards animal care personnel who provide daily care and medical attention
  • 10% is allocated for enrichment and husbandry to ensure the animals are mentally and physically stimulated
  • 8% is for the maintenance of habitats, keeping them safe and natural
  • 4% covers utilities such as water and electricity
  • 2% is reserved for emergency transport to get animals the urgent care they need

Your generosity helps provide the essentials needed for these incredible creatures. Join us in making a tangible difference—every bit helps to keep Costa Rica wild!
