Explore.org: Big Sur Condor Nest (Ventana Wildlife Society's Condor Sanctuary)

Welcome to Ventana Wildlife Society’s Condor Sanctuary.

Located two miles east of the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, California, the sanctuary is surrounded by pristine US Forest Service lands, which are visible in the background. Ventana Wildlife Society has been releasing captive-bred condors to Big Sur, California since 1997. We use live-streaming webcams to monitor Endangered California Condors at our sanctuary and, when possible, at active wild nests along the central California coast. Occasionally, still-born calf carcasses are provided to the condors as a clean (non-lead) carcass source to help reduce the threat of lead poisoning; the number one condor threat. You will see the most condor action from late morning to early afternoon. If you see a condor, visit www.condorspotter.com to help identify that individual inputting the color and number of the wing tag. While viewing, you may get lucky and also see a variety of other species such as mountain lions, bobcats, black-tailed deer, golden or bald eagles, ravens, or blue birds
