It’s a singular moment when an animal raised in captivity takes that first step—or first flap—into the wild. Tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 5) the Ventana Wildlife Society will be livestreaming the release of its “2022 rookies,” four juvenile condors hatched at the Los Angeles Zoo that are now ready to move out of the house. The Zoom event begins at 9:30am, and the release—which is at VWS’ release site in San Simeon—happens at 10am. Photographed by VWS/Meredith Evans.
