Toucan Rescue Ranch Get Excited for its Reforestation Project “Bosque de Los Perezosos” with Café Britt for Earth Day:
THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE PANDEMIC
Today, Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR) announces its continuation of the reforestation project called “Bosque de Los Perezosos,” with its partner, Café Britt. This project enables Toucan Rescue Ranch’s Release Site to expand by connecting forest canopy that is currently fragmented due to surrounding agricultural development. The plan is to plant an additional 1,000 trees varying in species to help create a biological corridor at the Release Site! It is planned to be planted by Café Britt volunteers throughout 2020.
“Toucan Rescue Ranch is grateful for this incredible opportunity with Café Britt to expand its Release Site rainforest and provide more homes for its released wildlife,” Leslie Howle, Co-Founder at Toucan Rescue Ranch, said.
POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Many animals, such as sloths, have benefited from the extensive wildlife reintroduction efforts by Toucan Rescue Ranch and the Saving Sloths Together Project. Café Britt has already been a working component to this project by donating tracking equipment that is critical for the post-release research of sloths – thanks to the success of the coffee line Habitat: Sloth blend. In addition, Café Britt, alongside the Costa Rican Institute of Electricity (ICE), has already planted dozens of trees at TRR’s release site property in the Sarapiqui region. The development of “Bosque de Los Perezosos” will enable Toucan Rescue Ranch to continue its release efforts with a healthier and more connected rainforest canopy.
