“Eva” is short for evacuate, a name given to her by LA Zoo staff who cared for her when she arrived from the field. Eva was evacuated from her nest on 9/2/2020 by VWS and Pinnacles biologists before the Dolan Fire burned over her nest cave. She had a back injury when she arrived to the zoo and was having issues balancing. Fortunately, thanks to the efforts of LA Zoo, her back completely healed. Eva is now in good health residing in a large flight pen at LA Zoo with Iniko and 9 other young condors. Iniko and Eva will released in San Simeon in fall 2021.
