Welcome to the California Central Coast Chapter of The Wildlife Society

Help Rebuild the California Condor Flock Following the Losses in the Dolan Fire

In 2020, the Dolan Fire burned nearly 125,000 acres along the Big Sur Coast of California. During the fire, nine free-flying California condors (Gymnogyps californianus) and two chicks perished, accounting for approximately 10% of the central California population. In addition, the Ventana Wildlife Society’s Big Sur Condor Sanctuary, one of the key sites for restoring the condor population, was completely destroyed.

The California Central Coast Chapter of The Wildlife Society is running this fundraiser to help raise funds to support rebuilding the California condor flock along the Big Sur coast and support the Ventana Wildlife Society in continuing their work restoring wild condors in California. The Ventana Wildlife Society is a non-profit organization committed to recovering self-sustaining free-flying populations of California condors by augmenting the wild population through the release of captive raised young and monitoring wild nests in the central coast region.
