VENTURA – People around the world have the unprecedented opportunity to observe nesting California condors and their young chicks in real time via live-streaming webcams near the U. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in southern California and at the Ventana Wildlife Society’s (VWS) Condor Sanctuary in Big Sur along the central California coast.
Biologists installed webcams in two California condor nests located in the rugged terrain of Ventura and Monterey counties to enable the public to watch California condor chicks and their parents.
Whalen said the park also has received separate donations, but she said she didn't know how much.
All the money will be used to feed, house and care for the giraffes.
