Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR) focuses on the care, rehabilitation and study of Costa Rican toucans and other wildlife. We receive and care for confiscated, sick and injured wildlife from government agencies. TRR gives animals a loving home with the goal of providing appropriate medical treatment, rehabilitation and then, when possible, returning wildlife back to its natural environment. The Toucan Rescue Ranch is a licensed Costa Rican wildlife rescue facility and a 501(c)3 charitable organization in the United States (EIN: 80-0516453).

It was great to see a place that cares so much for the animals - very informative! Maria was the guide and took extra time to answer questions. Suggestion: head to Sibu Restaurant when you are done!
