This tool will help you identify California condors you see in central California.

Currently, around 60 California condors are free-flying in the central California region. All have colored and numbered tags that allow biologists to track and monitor them in the wild.

Ventana Wildlife Society (VWS) began condor releases in Big Sur in 1997 and in 2003 initiated a second release site at Pinnacles National Monument in collaboration with the National Parks Service (NPS).
