Condors in new home at San Diego Wild Animal Park

Almost a week has passed since the condors inspected their new home at San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park. The endangered Andean and California Condors were evacuated last October when the Witch fire damaged San Pasqual Valley and burned the condors' breeding facility and 600 acres within the park.

The five condors are part of a captive-breeding program that aims to create more young and release them in the wild to replenish the species' diminished numbers. Although the breeding facility is off-limits to the public, park visitors can see three condors at the Condor Ridge site.
