Costa Rica News – Save the date of Wednesday August 3rd because at 9 pm Costa Rica’s most well known toucan is about to get even more famous by being featured on Animal Planet for the whole world to hear his story.
Many companies stepped up to make him a 3D beak replacement so he could eat and be more independent.
Paula Heredia, a Costa Rican filmmaker, was so moved by the story that she decided to make the documentary.
She hopes it will contribute to the creation of better laws about animal rights.
In an interview, the filmmaker explained that she worked closely with so many people in Costa Rica to make the story accurate and inspiring.
She worked on the project for over a year and a half with the help of ZooAve, government specialists and environmental groups.
