Special Talk: Nest-Guarding California Condors

Joseph Brandt doing talk at Bitter Creek NWR 2012

Friends of California Condors Wild and Free invites you to hear a free presentation by Joseph Brandt on Sunday, January 12, 2014 at 2:00 to approximately 4:00. 

Mr. Brandt, Supervisory Biologist for the US Fish & Wildlife Service, will speak on  “Nest Guarding of California Condors and the Condor Recovery Program” at the Faulkner Room of the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara, CA.

In addition to being a co-star in the movie “The Condor’s Shadow” Joseph is an accomplished speaker who has served as a biologist in the Nest Guarding Program since its 2007 inception. He oversees strategic interventions throughout the nesting season to monitor egg and chick development. The California condor nest guarding program has monitored the successful fledging of fourteen wild condor chicks since 2007, and witnessed nesting success grow from approximately six percent to almost 65% in the Los Padres mountains of southern California.
The Friends group will have their famous shirts, hats and plush Condors available for a modest donation. Cash or Checks only.  Also, when parking near the Santa Barbara Library note the driveway next to the library is actually a FIRE lane. For more information about the program, please contact Debbie Jasek Parisi, Publicity Chairperson for the Friends of California Condors Wild and Free via email at publicity@friendsofcondors.org
