The Toucan Rescue Ranch's (TRR) mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release Costa Rican wildlife. TRR works with a model that focuses on conservation, education and research so a brighter tomorrow is promised to the incredible animals of Costa Rica's rainforests. The Toucan Rescue Ranch was established in 2004 by Leslie Howle and Jorge Murillo as a rescue center for toucans and other birds. Nonetheless, the rescue center quickly expanded to owls and other wildlife. In 2007, a baby sloth, Millie, arrived and was solely in Leslie and Jorges care. Millie is initially what transformed the Toucan Rescue Ranch into a fully operating wildlife rescue. Leslie and Jorge work as a team alongside a small staff, interns, and volunteers in caring for Costa Rican wildlife. As a charitable organization, we are supported by donations. Donations provide financial support that directly promotes the health and well-being of rescued wildlife. We promise with your support youre improving the quality of rescued animals lives and the life of our rainforests. The Toucan Rescue Ranch is a licensed Costa Rican wildlife rescue facility.
