3D Systems Corporation (DDD) on Aug. 22, 2016 announced that its digital manufacturing solutions played a crucial role in the rehabilitation of Grecia, a toucan in Costa Rica that lost the majority of its upper beak as the victim of a senseless act of cruelty. The attack on Grecia not only left the toucan unable to feed and fend for itself, but it sparked a national animal welfare campaign in Costa Rica that spread rapidly across the globe. 3D Systems assisted Grecia’s rehabilitation along with Grupo SG, a 3D Systems partner and reseller, by helping to devise a custom prosthetic for the injured toucan using the company’s end-to-end digital manufacturing solutions.
Grecia’s recovery and the international movement against animal cruelty generated by this attack as well as the efforts in Costa Rica to change animal protection laws are documented as part of the Animal Planet Presents film, Toucan Nation. Presented in association with Humane Society International and H/3 Foundation, TOUCAN NATION premieres Wednesday, August 24 at 10 PM ET/PT on Animal Planet.
Because a toucan’s beak is a critical instrument of survival, Grecia’s attack not only shattered the hard, hollow portion of the upper beak, but it stripped Grecia of autonomy as well. Following the attack, Grecia was taken to ZOOAVE Rescue Center in Costa Rica, where over 2,500 birds, mammals and reptiles are admitted each year. Although many birds in Grecia’s position usually face euthanasia, the veterinarians were moved by Grecia’s visible determination to live. Yet given the immense workload of the center, committing to daily nursing and care was not a feasible option. In need of a better solution, the ZOOAVE staff turned to 3D Systems for help creating a 3D printed prosthetic beak.
