The entire month of June will be dedicated to our 2nd Annual #trrshareyourshot where you can share your wildlife photography with the Toucan Rescue Ranch with a chance to take 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in both the adult and junior photographers categories. The winners will receive unforgettable prizes including an overnight stay in Costa Rica and the opportunity to visit our ranch!

THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS FUNDRAISER:
At the Toucan Rescue Ranch, our number one priority is keeping our staff, visitors, and most of all, our wildlife safe. We also want our sanctuary to be inclusive for everyone, no matter their needs which is why we are raising money to construct a new security gate and resting spots within our sanctuary.
The funds raised from this photography competition will be used to purchase and construct a security gate, security camera, new locks for enclosures, and 4 new benches for seating among our educational walks.
It is important to us that our guests have the best experience at our facility while learning about wildlife conservation and that involves having resting spots, especially for those who are of old age or have disabilities.
In addition to resting spots, enhancing security at TRR is long overdue. The desire to secure a formal lock system and a practical gate is a constant among our team – all we need are the funds!
Without the safety and security of our rehabilitating and sanctuary animals, the Toucan Rescue Ranch could not be sustainable.
