#Papayaislife for Giving Tuesday 2020

We care for 265 animals and over 50 species of wildlife. That means we have to feed all of the animals constantly. What do the animals love the most? Papaya, of course!

TRR goes through nearly 1-ton of papaya in JUST one week. This doesn’t include the various fruits and vegetables that we also provide in our diversified animal diets. Did you know that Toucan Rescue Ranch spends $42,000 each year on JUST papaya?! How wild is that?

Toucan Rescue Ranch is 100% funded by generous donations. All donations are also tax-deductible as we are a nonprofit in the U.S. and a Costa Rican Foundation! With your donations of $25, $50, $75, or $100, help us keep the wildlife rescue center running! How amazing is that?

The Toucan Rescue Ranch is a licensed Costa Rica wildlife rescue facility, Costa Rica foundation (300667701803), and a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (EIN: 80-0516453).

To Pay for Food

Help keep the animals at TRR happy by helping us keep their stomachs full. Did you know we spend nearly $3,000 on JUST food!?

To Pay for Medical Supplies

Toucan Rescue Ranch has a fully equipped clinic where we operate on injured wildlife and provide premier medical treatment.

Prove a Happy Life

When an animal is not able to be released into the wild, it is important to give that animal the best life in captivity. We spend roughly $2,000 on maintenance and enrichment activities, this is all to keep them happy and safe.

1-TON of Papaya

The Toucan Rescue Ranch goes through roughly 1 ton of papaya in just ONE week. This doesn’t include the other various fruits and vegetables that the wildlife eats such as bananas, apples, green beans, carrots, fish, and other delicious items for the animals.

Medical Program

The clinic is an essential component of our rehabilitation center. When restocking the various supplies that we use such as syringes, medicine, sterilization tools and so forth it can be an extremely pricey expense. Did you know that it costs us roughly $200 for an emergency procedure? What about the fact that it costs us nearly $1,000 each month to properly stock the clinic? All the money raised from #Papayaislife helps us do just that: Keep our clinic operating smoothly in order to save more lives!

Growth Means More, MUCH More

The center continues to grow and with growth means more expenses. Since TRR’s humble beginning, it accepts and cares for nearly 300 animals all with unique demands to remain healthy. As well as the challenges that we’ve faced during 2020 due to Covid-19.

Donating to the #PapayaisLife fund is one of the most impactful ways you can contribute to the rescue center. This money helps keep TRR operating!
