Symbolic Parrot Oasis: Witch Hazel


The Toucan Rescue Ranch rescues dozens of parrots every year. Nearly all of them are confiscated from people’s homes as illegal pets. In Costa Rica, it is illegal to own any native wildlife as a pet. Traditionally, Costa Rican families have kept these animals in their homes which has caused a huge unreleasable permanent resident population for rescue centers like Toucan Rescue Ranch.


By symbolically adopting a retired parrot from #ParrotOasis Retirement Home, you will be directly helping with the species’ ongoing food and care. With your donation, you will receive an ADOPTION CERTIFICATE and thank you email with your tax-deductible information. The Parrot Oasis Adoption pays for your adopted species costs for roughly 1-month!

WITCH HAZEL: Witch Hazel is a kind, eccentric, and cunning lil witchy bird. She is also extremely mischievous and loves to play tricks on the Release Site team by disguising herself as a bat.

We do not physically sell or adopt out any of the rescued wildlife in Toucan Rescue Ranch’s care. Our Adoption Program is purely symbolic and a unique way for supporters to donate to our mission and their favorite animal.
In Costa Rica, it is illegal to sell or own any native fauna. As a licensed rescue center, it is our duty to uphold the law and what it stands for. As well as being illegal in the country of Costa Rica, it is a core part of TRR’s mission to protect wildlife from the illegal pet trade – as this is something we combat every day. ADOPTION DONATIONS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.
