Big Sur Condors

The California Condor is North America's largest and most endangered land bird. The Ventana Wilderness Society is engaged in an ongoing effort to re-introduce the condor to this part of its historic range. Habitat loss due to development and decades of shooting and poisoning finally resulted in the complete extinction of condors throughout the majority of their former range. An aggressive captive breeding program, combined with controlled re-introduction at a remote field release site has resulted in this magnificent bird making a strong comeback in the Big Sur and Santa Lucia territory.

If you spot a condor, you can call the Ventana Wilderness Society with the location and description of the sighting at 831-624-1202.

This non-profit conservation organization has also successfully brought back the local peregrine falcon and bald eagle populations after a long absence.
