  • How Wildlife Bridges are Saving Animals from Electrocution in Costa Rica

    The urban development in Costa Rica and the emergence of power lines running throughout the country’s rich wildlife habitat have endangered the lives of many native animals including monkeys and sloths via electrocution.

  • ¡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. 

  • Wildlife Catalog: Keel Billed Toucan

    The Killed-billed Toucan is one of the most iconic species of Costa Rica, its bright colored beak has become synonymous with visions of trekking in the rainforest. Adults are mostly black with a vibrant yellow-feather bib covering their throat and chest and a green ring around their eyes. Your eye however is drawn to the large brightly colored bill, a rainbow of colors: yellow, green, orange and blue with a red tip. Both sexes are similar in color, but the males are larger.

  • Wildlife Catalog: Neotropical River Otter

    Otters are an animal like no ‘otter’. Long and slender, they mostly resemble their close relatives, weasels, and martens with some quite specific differences. Otters are generally elongated, with extremely flexible spines, allowing for the quick up and down motions needed for underwater locomotion. Neotropical river otters are sexually dimorphic with males being about 25% larger than females. 

  • Wildlife Catalog: Yellow-Naped Parrot

    In Costa Rica, yellow-naped amazons are important because they’re the only mid-sized parrot on the Pacific side of the country. They’re also one of the most captured species for the wild animal trade. Yellow-naped parrots are recognized for their bright personalities, melodious voices, and willingness to imitate sounds, making them particularly attractive to poachers.
