Event at SB Zoo Sept. 25th: The California Condor Recovery


cal_vultureTonight! September 25th at 5:45 pm, the Santa Barbara Zoo is hosting a lecture night to discuss the California Condor recovery. This is a rare opportunity to hear from biologists who are on the front lines of the condor recovery effort in the California backcountry.

According to the Zoo’s website, “by 1982, the California condor teetered on the brink of extinction; only 22 birds remained in the world. The last wild California condor was captured at Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge in 1987.  Following an unprecedented multi-agency captive breeding and reintroduction effort, the condor is well on its way to recovery with more than 230 flying free.”
