At 10 a.m. PDT, Ventana Wildlife Society biologists in collaboration with the Oakland Zoo will swing open an enclosure door and watch as the condors transition into the wild.

But in a news release, Ventana Wildlife Society Executive Director Kelly Sorenson tried to temper expectations.

“A typical condor release is largely uneventful as we want the birds to comfortably and slowly make this transition successfully,” Sorenson said. “The actual release itself is just the opening of the enclosure door and is the kind of thing that is best watched over a period of days and even weeks since it is up to the condors what they do next.”
