Help Us Turn Hope into Action for Wildlife Conservation in Costa Rica!


In the heart of Costa Rica lies the Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR), a sanctuary for the country's most vulnerable wildlife. For 20 years, TRR has been a beacon of hope, rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing injured, displaced, and orphaned animals. From sloths and toucans to howler monkeys, TRR has been instrumental in giving over 500 animals annually a second chance at life.

2024 marks the 20th anniversary of the Toucan Rescue Ranch, and to celebrate this milestone, we're bringing our mission to the United States for the first time. We're excited to announce our inaugural gala event, Wildlife Wonders: A Night of Hope & Conservation, set to take place on April 25, 2024, at the Nashville Zoo in Nashville, Tennessee. This event aims to raise crucial funds to continue our work in wildlife conservation and to kick off our most ambitious project yet.

Your ticket purchase includes dinner, a live auction, keynote speakers, and an unforgettable night of saving wildlife

💰Our Goal & What it Funds:

We've set an ambitious goal to raise $100,000 through this gala event. These funds are vital for the continuation and expansion of our programs, including:

  • Saving Sloths Together: A program dedicated to the research, rescue, and rehabilitation of sloths.
  • Saving Howler Monkeys Together: Focused on the conservation of howler monkeys through rescue operations and habitat restoration.
  • The WildMed Fund: A critical initiative providing medical care and treatment for injured wildlife.
  • Saving Toucans Together: A targeted effort to protect and rehabilitate toucans, one of Costa Rica's most iconic bird species. This program addresses the specific challenges toucans face, from habitat loss to the pet trade.
  • Saving Raptors Together: Dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of raptors, including hawks, eagles, and owls. These birds of prey are essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems, and our program aims to ensure their survival and prosperity.
  • Parrot Retirement Fund: Recognizing the needs of parrots that have been retired from the pet trade or can no longer be cared for by their owners. This fund ensures they receive the care, socialization, and environment they need to live out their lives in happiness and health.
  • Keeping Costa Rica Wild Fund: An overarching fund aimed at preserving the natural habitats of Costa Rica, supporting reforestation efforts, and supporting the various mammals in Toucan Rescue Ranch's care. This fund is vital for the protection of all wildlife and the preservation of Costa Rica's natural beauty.
