Kidz Korner: Tristan, the future sloth conservationist, runs a fundraiser of his own!
After a few months of making and creating, Tristan and Noelle were finally ready to hold their bake and craft sale fundraiser. They set up a table on our driveway and laid out the goodies we’d all made to sell. There was homemade fudge, condensed milk flapjacks, apple, and strawberry whole-wheat muffins, and an array of crochet ranging from bows to put on presents, flower broaches for coats/handbags/hats to daisy napkin rings.
Be Thankful to your friend the Sloth for International Sloth Day!
Sloths are some of the most interesting animals to have ever graced the earth, and yet they remain quite the unknowable little critters. The group that contains sloths, Xenarthrans, began evolving 65 million years ago, during the age of the dinosaurs. Ever since then these curious fuzzy creatures have diversified and become some of the most interesting and odd-looking groups of animals to ever exist.

¡Grandes noticias! Toucan Rescue Ranch se convierte en una organización deducible de impuestos
Toucan Rescue Ranch recibió increibles noticias por parte del Gobierno costarricense este mes. Como han de saber, nuestra organización es una fundación sin fines de lucro tanto en Costa Rica como Estados Unidos. Desde hace algunos años, somos una organización con deducible de impuestos para donaciones en EEUU, lo cuál significa que quienes donan a nuestro centro, pueden reclamar el monto donado como un deducible de impuestos, y así pagar menos de los mismos al gobierno. Y ahora, ¡también nos convertimos en deducible de impuestos en Costa Rica!
Kidz Korner: Creating a space to inspire the future
A major part of conservation is involving the younger generations – because it is their future we are fighting to protect the most. As part of our work, we focus on education, not only for children but for communities and everyone who wants to be a part of conservation in Costa Rica. But when it comes to children, we know we can also learn a lot about their insights, their perspectives and encourage them to raise their voices and become active participants in the work we do.
