The Toucan Rescue Ranch Mission:

The Toucan Rescue Ranch’s (TRR) mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release Costa Rican wildlife. TRR works with a model focusing on conservation, education, and research to ensure a brighter tomorrow for native wildlife. TRR works closely with the Ministry of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica (MINAE), rescuing and bringing wildlife to our facility. TRR provides sanctuary while giving premier medical treatment, rehabilitation, and eventual release into its natural environment.

In 2024, we celebrate our 20th anniversary: Toucan Rescue Ranch honors its past, embraces its future, and remains dedicated to wildlife preservation and compassionate care.
