Our progress toward California Condor species recovery took a tremendous blow in 2020 when the Dolan Fire destroyed the Big Sur Condor Sanctuary. Rebuilding is underway and releasing condors to the wild continues at our San Simeon release site. Now, we are also making additional preparations for the possibility of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza. Please consider making a gift today so we can continue moving forward in condor recovery.
USFWS Matching Fund - Help Us Restore the Flock
Thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Endangered Species Fund, every dollar spent this year will be matched 1:1! Our 2023-24 (Apr-Mar) goal is $372,000. Please consider making a gift today and help the condor survive in the wild again.
Your Support Is Crucial So That We Can Continue To:
- Conduct as many releases of captive-bred condors to the wild as possible
- Ensure population growth and healthy dynamics of the flock
- Ensure the survival of condor chicks and adult pairs as they successfully nest in the wild
- Minimize hazards such as lead poisoning from the ingestion of spent ammunition
The goal of $365,000 for
2022-23 was met.
Be sure to help the condors
this year, too!
