WILDLIFE WONDERS: A Night of Hope & Conservation

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.
