We began releasing condors in 1997 at our private hillside sanctuary along the Big Sur coast. Since then, we have helped establish another central California release site at Pinnacles National Park and more recently, began releasing condors at a coastal site near San Simeon. These facilities have helped expand condor distribution in areas offering important nesting habitat and scavenging resources. In fact, shortly after releases began in San Simeon, two adult condors came down the coast from Big Sur and established a nearby territory, being the first condors to nest in San Luis Obispo County in over 60 years. Although condors are successfully nesting on their own in the wild, we still conduct periodic releases of young birds to support the growth of the population. Currently, we are assisting the Yurok Tribe and the National Park Service as they establish a condor release site at Redwood National Park. This project will expand condor distribution to Northern California and possibly even beyond..
