The USFWS and the Santa Barbara Zoo invite you to join our efforts to save the condor. The Nest Guarding program has monitored the successful fledging of 14 wild condor chicks since 2007, and witnessed nesting success grow from about 6% to almost 60%! Volunteers are required to go through two mandatory trainings, and expected to work independently. Time commitment is two times per month, from the early spring to late fall. Some observation points require strenuous hiking, or camping overnight. Volunteers should have their own hiking equipment, high clearance vehicle capable of driving on uneven dirt roads, a good sense of adventure, and a strong desire to assist in the recovery of the California Condor! To inquire for the next training dates, please call (805) 644-5185.
