Pinnacles Condor Program
National Park Service
Pinnacles National Park has been a part of the California Condor Recovery Program since 2003. The park now manages 25 free-flying condors. Each bird is monitored carefully after its release to increase its chances of survival. Management by park biologists helps newly released condors choose safe roosting sites and avoid hazards such as power lines, buildings, roads or trails, and lead-contaminated food.
