A quote from Leigh Adams, who visited the Toucan Rescue Ranch….
“What you do is so much greater than just helping the injured and sick animals, so much greater. You are replenishing the planet so that our grandchildren’s grandchildren can see a toucan in the wild, can hear the call of an owl at night, can witness the beauty of nature, whole and complete, healthy and strong and reproducing for centuries to come!”
THE TOUCAN RESCUE RANCH IS A RAINFOREST WILDLIFE RESCUE, REHABILITATION AND RELEASE ORGANIZATION.
We focus on the care, rehabilitation and the study of Costa Rican toucans and other wildlife. We receive and care for confiscated, sick and injured toucans and other wildlife from government agencies. We give them a loving home with the goal of providing appropriate medical treatment, rehabilitation and then, when possible, returning them to their wild and natural environment. The Toucan Rescue Ranch is a licensed Costa Rican wildlife rescue facility.

TRANSLATION OF AN ARTICLE IN WSPA, A SWEDISH MAGAZINE:
“Andreas and Natalie Öberg spent their honeymoon filming work at a rescue ranch for wild rainforest animals in Costa Rica. – It was absolutely amazing to witness their work. My biggest insight was how similar we and animals are. Just like us they need closeness, security and love. It is also very inspiring that a poor country like Costa Rica puts so much of its resources for saving and protection of animals. But everyone can experience these things too. Toucan Rescue Ranch that got TripAdvisors Certificate of Excellence 2012 offers bed and breakfast and an exciting guided tour. – At the ranch one will meet sloths, owls, parrots and other wild animals. Many of them are rare. Every visit contributes to the ranch’s work in saving animals, says Andreas Öberg. It is fantastic to meet people like Leslie and Jorge that truly show us the way for how to take care of animals. The couple are now working on their film about the rescue ranch and about Costa Rican animal police’s rescue actions that are filled with unexpected drama. “

We’ve taken in so many birds and animals in the last months that we’ve run out of enclosures. We won’t overcrowd the animals so we’ve had to say no to MINAE a few times when they wanted to bring us orphan animals. If you would like to help us build some new enclosures, please click the DONATE button on the right.
