When news broke in 2017 that two California condors made the first known nest of wild-born condors since 1985, thus furthering the return of the near-extinct species, it was the wildlife biologists of Ventana Wildlife Society who were credited with tracking and spotting the nest in the Big Sur wilderness. This chick was the first second-generation wild-born condor in decades.

Previously the society has successfully seen to the recovery of a breeding population of bald eagles in central California. These folks walk it like they flock it by maintaining an exhaustive database of condor movement patterns using radio telemetry and GPS tracking.
