Condor Memorial

Condors flying in the mist.

Unfortunately, condors in the wild are still dying from mainly human-related causes. This page is a memorial for all the Pinnacles condors who have died since the program began in 2003. A memorial for all Ventana Wildlife Society condors who have died can be found here.
