Call for Artists | 2020 | Completed

A Relief Fund for TRR:

The Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR) is in solidarity with its country, Costa Rica (and the world) as it loses one of its most lucrative and major sectors: Tourism. Many rescue centers, tour agencies, hotels, restaurants, and dozens of other industries are suffering from the effects of coronavirus and the borders closing to international tourism. TRR has certainly been among those that are experiencing a loss, having 50% less overall income, forcing employee cuts, and putting a halt to certain programs altogether.

However, the show must go on for all those working in places such as veterinary clinics, hospitals, and rescue centers. As the country takes necessary precautions to ensure public safety, TRR still needs to attend to the 320 animals in its care. Our main source of income is from its educational walks from both national and international visitors. On March 18, we followed suit with Costa Rica and decided to close its doors to the public until borders reopen on May 15. Due to this, we have lost our main source of income as well as the ability to accept new international volunteers and interns.

We spend $3,025.00 to feed all of the incredible animals at Toucan Rescue Ranch. We purchase seeds, pellets, carnivore diets, fruits, and vegetables for the 320 animals in our care. This covers costs for 1-month!

Wildlife Clinic

We spend $3,129 in our clinic monthly! This helps us purchase medicines for treatments, clinical supplies such as rubber gloves, protective gear, syringes, and other necessary supplies.


An additional $845 is spent on external medical needs such as X-rays and lab tests. We call on a radiologist who drives a portable x-ray clinic in the back of their van! We also send fecal and blood samples to a lab to discover bacteria, parasite, and fungus infections

What is Needed

🌎 This year’s campaign will act as a RELIEF FUND, which will help us maintain our daily animal-care operations. The money raised from this campaign will help us with our mission to feed, treat, rehabilitate, enrich, and release wildlife!
